The 2010 Winemakers selection is a Rhone style blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. This wine blend was created to bring out and enhance the flavors of these grape varietals. The blend selection is performed every year, and the amounts of each varietal change with the vintage to produce a smooth balanced wine. The aim here is not to replicate the famous Chateauneuf-du-Pape blend, but to bring out the great aromas and flavors these varietals produce in this part of California. In this wine, strawberry, lavender and caramel aromas tantalize the nose, blackberry, black pepper and toasted almond flavors tantalize the palate.
