Owner & Winemaker Curt Schalchlin has been producing high-quality domestic Rhône blends at a very respectable price level for years. Curt worked for some of the best winemakers in the industry and went solo about over a decade ago, and the rest is history. Today Sans Liege has a worldwide fan base among my clients, as far as Japan, Europe, and South America. The 2020 Sans Liege “The Offering” is by far the best Cali Côtes du Rhône release to date!
Sans Liege 2020 GSM “The Offering” Santa Barbara
RETAIL 33.99 – GGWC 29.99
The Sans Liege “The Offering” (a blend of 42% Grenache, 38% Syrah, and 20% Mourvèdre) is a wine that captures the imagination and challenges expectations, it displays a beautiful purity and depth that is reminiscent of having a summer picnic in an ancient church. Resinous scents of black cherry cola, frankincense, fresh-peeled Clementine orange, and vanilla extract lead to a well-structured and balanced palate of curried mix-berry cobbler, turmeric, dark chocolate cocoa nibs and black pepper with rocky, silky tannins.
Winemaker Notes: “Within the refuge of the cottage fire dances in the wood-burning stove while outside a coastal storm rages. The windows show you redwoods and sassafras trees being assailed by rain. You pick up your book to settle in for the afternoon and take in a long breath. Scents of dark cherry, chocolate shavings, and baking spices linger in the air from the morning’s baking project and they meld with the more savory aromas of herbs de Provence and white pepper from the kitchen. As you exhale you happily ease into quietude. Blend: 44% Grenache, 36% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre”
Wine Spectator 94 Points: "Distinctive, refined and well-built, offering expressive black cherry, cigar box, green olive, and cured meat accents that build richness on the long finish. Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre."
