2017 High Tide, Rhone Blend
SANTA BARBARA COUNTY
This High Tide is a blend of equal parts Mourvèdre, Grenache and Syrah. Mourvèdre provides spice, florals and earthy tones. Grenache gives red fruit aromatics, while Syrah fleshes out the mid-palate, and adds to the long finish. Fermented using two-thirds whole cluster fruit, this is a full, textured wine that should continue to develop in the bottle for up to 10 years past the vintage. As a young wine, Syrah is showing dominate, but expect Mourvèdre to come to the forefront in the coming years.
