Rhone Blend

9138 visitors
The Rhône wine region is first divided into north and south. The north produces syrah based reds and pure viognier whites. The south produces Châteauneuf-du-Pape and other blends from several varieties. The first cultivated vines were likely planted in 600 BC, however, the orgins of the two most important grape varieties in the northern Rhone (Syrah and Viognier) are unknown.

2004 Red Ink: Bordeaux/Rhone Blend

Red Ink, our propriety name for this lively and approachable wine, reflects the color of the ruby and violet highlights (Red Ink!). This wine has the aroma of candied fruit: strawb ...moreerry, cranberry, earthy notes, leather and a hint of mint. The luscious aromas of fruit, earthiness and leather weave complex layers throughout the wine. The finish is very long, exuding berries, spices, and butterscotch. Open a bottle of Red Ink for dinner; you will not be disappointed. It's easy to drink, and very easy to enjoy. Cheers!

2005 Percent At Pound Dollar Exclamation
Sierra Foothills

These tasting notes are often based on the winemaker’s notes. Well, this time he told me that this %@#$! had aromas of peaches and butter. Have you ever buttered a peach? Just weir ...mored if you ask me. Then he goes on to mention creamy flavors of pear and truffles. Okay, now we have peaches and butter and pears and mushrooms. Is this insane or what? Well, I can tell you that this %@#$! is a lot yummier than that, and has body and character almost like a red wine. And it will even lay down for a few years. How cool is that? (as seen in the July 13, 2007 Wall Street Journal!)

This wine is a rich blend of 62% Marsanne and 38% Roussanne.

2005 Cashmere

We initially created this blend as an auction lot for the Hospice du Rhone held in Paso Robles each year. Cashmere is a very flavorful, smooth wine that offers big cherry, raspber ...morery and chocolate notes with hints of cracked black pepper and plum.

2005 Lapsus, Rhone-style Blend

Our 2005 Lapsus marries our Amarrosa Roussanne with our Quinlin Viognier. This year features a little more oak time on the Roussanne which doesn't come accross as oak so much in th ...moree Lapsus, but vanilla. In the Condrieu appellation of France, Viognier is the only allowed white wine varietal. A few miles down the Rhône on the opposite bank is Hermitage where Roussanne and Marsanne are the only allowed whites. Legend has it that when the Chevalier Gaspard de Stérimberg returned wounded from the Albigeois crusades in 1224, he cloistered himself within the tiny hamlet on the hill that now bears his description, Hermitage, and refused to speak for the remainder of his pious life. Surrounded as he was with spectacular vineyards he did some winemaking, and discovered the virtues of a unique blend of his local Roussanne with up river Viognier. Appearing to us in a dream, the garrulous Saint, though taciturn in life, revealed his secret in a Lapsus Lengua, slip of the tongue, and the blend, as well as the name of this wine was born. Raise a glass of Lapsus to the good St. Stérimberg.

2006 Heritage Blanc
Santa Barbara County

Our 2006 Heritage Blanc is a classic Rhône-style blend with a complexity of flavor that is attributable to the inclusion of Viognier and Roussanne from vineyards in the Santa Ynez ...moreValley. It offers a vivid floral bouquet followed by opulent flavors of peach and pear with appealing mineral accents. The Roussanne component adds an assertiveness to the mid-palate, while the Viognier contributes elements of citrus and spice.

2005 Io Rhone Blend
Santa Barbara County

"Like the strong-willed princess from Greek mythology for whom the wine is named, Io is beautifully expressive and sensuous, combining Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre from Santa Bar ...morebara County vineyards. The 2005 Io is concentrated, complex, and exceptionally well balanced on all levels. Aromas of strawberry, blackberry pie, dark plum and earth are accented by white pepper, brown spice and toasty smoke. The mature fruit flavors and rich concentration are framed by silky, rounded tannins and a supporting thread of natural acidity, making the 2005 Io a superb accompaniment to a wine array of full-flavored dishes. The wine offers a remarkable length on the palate that continues through its opulent, resonating finish."

2005 Tres Violet
Paso Robles

Medium red purple in color. Ripe, rich Rhone aromas. The nose shows dark cherries, raspberries and a hint of mocha chocolate. Cinnamon and spicy fullness in mid-palate, with a gene ...morerous, yet soft and lingering finish. The composition of the newly released '05 is a bit bolder than our '04. Now with 40% Mourvedre, 30% Syrah and 30% Grenache, this makes for a bombshell of a wine, but certainly not lacking a sense of stylish structure. This is Paso Robles Rhone at its best. Enjoy now or cellar 3-5 years.

2005 Carmichael "Sur le Pont" Rhône-Styled Blend
Monterey County

Warm and inviting on the nose, initial impressions of our Sur le Pont are of spice and chocolate, with plum and black cherry fruit also prominent in the aroma. Once in the mouth, t ...morehe tactile impression broadens considerably with a warm, roasted chestnut quality across the mid-palate, which then translates seamlessly into a full finish, with plenty of soft, chalky tannins. Dark red and black fruit flavors predominate in this rich and flavorful blend. This wine goes well with grilled meats and robust tomato-based pastas. It is also wonderful with a big, juicy steak. This Sur le Pont will age nicely through 2010.
