Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
In this blend, we sought to harmonize the elegant red fruit, spice and silky femininity of AZ Grenache with the more powerful characters of Syrah and ~25% whole-cluster-fermented Tempranillo. This wine is becoming a special one for us to highlight the complexity and austerity of Arizona terroir and the beauty of blending. Only 5 barrels produced.

Production Notes
Destemmed, but not crushed to open top 1⁄2-, 3⁄4-, and 1-ton bins. Tempranillo was left ~25% whole cluster. Cold-soaked 24 hours, then inoculated with specially selected yeasts (BRL97, D254, VRB, D80, T73). Hand punched 3-4 times daily. Inoculated with Malolactic bacteria (Alpha) around 7 Brix. Pressed at dryness after 10 days average skin contact. Settled 4-5 days before barreling.
