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.


Reviews

Jeb Dunnuck  92 Points ~ The 2017 High Tide Santa Barbara County checks in as close to equal parts Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre that saw plenty of stems and 18 months in 17% new French oak. This meaty, spicy blend offers a deep purple hue, notes of spiced blackberries, crushed violets, and peppery spice, medium-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and a well-balanced, concentrated style that's going to evolve nicely for 7-8 years or more. Maturity 2020-2028. — Jeb Dunnuck
