2017 L'Ange Rouge

2017 L'Ange Rouge

L’Ange Rouge, meaning “The Red Angel,” is dedicated to Mac’s grandmother who fittingly had a full head of red hair. This blend is meant to showcase the femininity of Grenache. Alta Mesa Grenache, blended with Grenache from Larner Vineyard showcases the depth of this varietal. Mourvèdre from Alta Mesa provides the balance.


VINIFICATION

The components of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre were fermented in small open-top bins, with 45% whole clusters included. The wine spent 15-20 days on the skins with a combination of pump-overs and punch downs. Grenache components aged 20 months in 500-liter neutral puncheons, Syrah and Mourvèdre aged in 265-liter barriques.

TASTING NOTES

Red plum, cherry blossom, raspberry sauce, herb de Provence, mixed berry crumble, Serrano ham, cola berry, wild strawberry, sweet tea. Lush and focused with polished tannins.
