2015 Overture – Overture is a blend of 45% Roussanne, 35% Grenache Blanc and 20% Picpoul Blanc, all of which were grown locally in the Santa Clara Valley. Roussanne provides the floral and honey notes, Grenache Blanc brings acidity and minerality, and Picpoul Blanc adds mouthfeel and hints of tropical fruit to the blend. Overture makes a perfect pairing for lobster and shrimp, roasted and grilled veggies or even an Asian stir fry.
2014 Prelude – Prelude is 55% Grenache Noir, 25% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre. The Grenache is the star of the show by providing abundant strawberry and red fruits to the nose and palate, Syrah brings darker fruit, musky aromatics and tannin, and the Mourvèdre ties it all together with its structure and backbone. This wine was blended while daydreaming of summer barbeques. Chicken, ribs, burgers or dogs — this bright, refreshing red wine has you covered.
2013 Rehearsal – Rehearsal is composed of 80% Syrah and 20% Carignane, both sourced from the Santa Clara Valley. In this blend, Syrah brings bold fruit with a hint of spice in the nose and dark fruit, smoke and black pepper to the palate. Carignane has been added to soften the often aggressive Syrah. Rehearsal is bold and playful and will fit perfectly into a summertime barbecue feast of ribs and other smoked meats.
