We combine both the Valenti Ranch, a one acre block of a Chave selection interplanted with both Grenache and Mourvedre, with McDowell and 877 from the Perli Vineyard. While this blend doesn’t play along with the rules of traditional GSM blends; this one is leaning considerably more in the Syrah direction and the Grenache and Mourvedre play more a seasoning role. The field planting from Valenti Ranch is picked all at once and vinified together along with a touch of Viognier for some aromatic lift. The McDowell and 877 from the Perli are blended in later. The fermentation was 100% native yeast using 100% whole clusters. The end result is a cool climate blend showing black and red fruits, crushed pepper, cured meat, fir tips, sage and a touch of floral violet. A lean cool climate blend showcasing the Mendocino Ridge coastal terroir. Pair with a Lamb Shank slow roasted with Rosemary. Purely Domestic Wine Report 92 Pts Wine & Spirits Magazine 90 Pts .
