This wine is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Tempranillo.
While it is common to blend Syrah and Grenache in wines made in the Rhone
Valley of France and Tempranillo and Grenache in the Rioja wine region of Spain, a
combination of these three varietals is quite unusual. I decided to name this
wine Amalur, which translates “mother earth” from the Basque language, a nation
who live in an area between France
as a metaphor to the origin of the wine.
The Tempranillo and Grenache grapes for this wine came from
the hilltop Duarte Vineyard in Georgetown
while the Syrah from our Estate vineyards. We followed our normal winemaking
protocols and used our Dual Compartment Submerged Cap Fermentation Tank and
aged the wine in predominantly French oak barrels.
The dark berry aromas which dominate in this wine carry to
the palate adding herbal and earthy notes. The sustained finish brings in more
dark fruit, cocoa with hints of smoke and licorice. While drinkable now, this
wine will benefit from years of aging.
