2017 Second Street Cuvée
Our 2017 Second Street returns to a true GSM with a blend dominated by Grenache and rounded out with Syrah and Mourvédre. The fruit all hails from a group of vineyards, throughout the county, that show off the beautiful, earthy quality Rhone varietals take on in this ideal location. This blend changes from vintage to vintage, depending on what we have in barrel, and I am really liking our Grenache from 2017 so it takes center stage in this wine. That said, the Syrah and Mourvédre are no slouches and they bring a ton of character to the wine, adding terrific dark fruits and earthy spice. Although a mouth filling wine we work hard on crafting it with a good backbone of acid and good tannic structure. It will cellar beautifully for a decade or longer but who can wait!
