2015 Jambalaia Rouge

59% Mourvedre, 21% Marsanne, 15% Grenache and 5% Syrah. 

With this vintage of the Jambalaia I feel we have gained some finesse and are getting closer to the vineyard's identity. It often takes me a few years to figure out what a vineyard has to say, and this wonderful little plot of mourvedre, grenache and marsanne on volcanic loam soil is no different. It is just a matter of finding each grape variety's sweet spot for a particular site.  Sounds easy, yes, but once you add in vintage differences, crop loads, ripening curves...well, it does get a little complex.  Each year is unique, and it takes a bit of experience with a site in order to read the tea leaves, as it were.  But I think I am getting closer here.

The Grenache suffered from shatter this year, so yields were way down, but the Mourvedre seemed very happy. We added a touch of Syrah into the blend to make up for the lighter Grenache harvest.

Last year's vintage was a touch tannic for my tastes, at least for near-term drinking, but this year the emphasis is once again on juicy red and blue fruit, mouthwatering acidity, and a touch of tannic backbone.  The wine is absolutely delicious now, and should continue to drink well for several years. We like to serve it with grilled meats and vegetables, and any foods with a bit of spice / heat.  Like a jambalaya!  And don't forget it drinks really nicely with a slight chill, especially on a hot day.

500 cases made.  11.7% alcohol. Screwtop closure.

$20 per bottle. A 20% discount will be applied on purchases of 12 bottles or more (mixed cases ok). Applicable sales tax and shipping costs not included in the price.
