“The earthiness and spice of Grenache and Mourvèdre in our Métier are a tremendous pairing with the flavors of the fall season. The savory balance of acidity and structure of this wine begs to be enjoyed with friends and family around the Thanksgiving table.”
- Jason Gorski, Director of Winemaking
Beginning with an impressive nose of raspberry liquor, Bing cherries, sangre (Spanish for ‘blood’ or ‘red’) meats, malt and Herbs de Provence, it’s a rich and rustic wine. Those sauvage (a.k.a. wild) flavors carry through to the mouth revealing briar patch raspberries, cracked black pepper, cherries and allspice. All these components join together in a harmonious, hedonistic and generous style to create a memorable vintage. Perfect for grilled meats.
This is a vintage that is full of clean, youthful aromas of deep raspberries, violets, strawberries and menthol. It keeps coming with jammy blackberry and raspberry flavors along with sweet apple and smoked bacon showing an additional layer of diverse spices from cracked black pepper to rosemary. Pure and focused now, this wine will continue to reward with short-term aging.
This vintage exhibits brambleberry and sweet smoke on the nose, with raspberries, strawberries, and an undercurrent of wild herbs. Minerals and licorice accompany charcuterie, dried blueberry and fresh fig flavors. Well-balanced acidity and polished tannins add to all the fruit components. Its very persistent fruit finish is tempting now, but its structure will also reward some additional time in the bottle.
