Drink now through 2020. 

This wine draws inspiration from the wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, combining three red varieties: grenache, syrah and mourvèdre. Heavily weighted to syrah (roughly 2/3 of the blend) it contributes fruit density and butcher shop meatiness. Mourvèdre and grenache add wild herb aromatics, a sense of resinous underbrush, and supple sweet fruit ripeness, respectively.  

Following a classic warm Paso summer the harvest lasted from mid September through early October. Grapes were de-stemmed, allowed a short cold soak, and fermented with indigenous yeast in open vats with twice day manual punch downs. The finished wine matured for over 1 ½ years in large French oak puncheons. A bolder statement than our regular Version blend, the Reserve reminds us of a warm climate Northern Rhône, a bit mischievous, but nevertheless memorable. Drink now or hold up to 2020.
