2018 Métier

2018 Métier
COLUMBIA VALLEY AVA


 
Tightly wound in its youth, our 2018 Métier eventually concedes, opening to reveal ripe raspberry and wild strawberry fruit aromas intermingled with fierce sauvage aromas of lavender, charcuterie and fennel pollen.  The initial impression on the palate is incredibly deceiving, as light, soft vanilla and red fruit flavors surrender to an explosive mid-palate fully packed with red plum, anise, tapenade and cedar. Hedonistic and generous, this stunning effort builds beautifully.

50% Mourvedre 28% Grenache 20% Syrah 2% Cinsault

Nowhere is the craft (métier) of blending wine more evident than in our own Métier. Mourvèdre (50%) lends wild (sauvage) brambleberry nuances and vibrant, dark hues supporting the bursts of raspberry and strawberry leaf from the expressive characteristics of Grenache (28%). Consistent with our style, Syrah (20%) brings juicy, generous, meaty flavors to the profile. Cinsault (2%) softens the blend releasing a subtle perfume of watermelon and strawberries. Whether appreciating a glass on its own or pairing with food, our Métier is delicious no matter how you choose to enjoy it.
