Site Wines Red Blend 2012
2012 Larner Red Wine: This wine is a blend of Syrah (75%), Grenache (20%), and Viognier (5%). The syrah and viognier were harvested October 20 and fermented together in small bins, with a small amount of the Syrah and all of the Viognier being whole cluster. The Syrah portion aged for 18 months in 80% new French oak. The Grenache spent 18 months in neutral French oak before everything was blended. The wine offers black currants, cracked black pepper, charcuterie, and white flowers. The mouth is rich yet very lively, with an ample supply of soft tannins and a long finish. 50 cases produced.
