2014 High Tide Rhone Blend
SANTA BARBARA COUNTY
This High Tide is a Mourvèdre dominated blend at 57%, rounding out with 29% Grenache and 14% Syrah. Mourvèdre provides the bones for this tightly-structured wine, showing a gamey flavor profile. Grenache gives higher tone perfume and red fruit aromatics, while Syrah fleshes out the mid-palate. Partial whole-cluster fermentation lends savory spice and broad texture to this complex wine that continues to develop in the glass, and should age well for up to 10 years past the vintage.
