2016 Make It New

$55.00

Overview

The goal for this wine was to make a power-oriented Grenache wine that served as a counterpoint to the varietal Grenache bottlings we love so much and as a foil to the Grenache/Syrah/Mouvedre blends from Gigondas.

This wine retains the same juicy strawberry core of Grenache, but builds from that starting point into something altogether more driven and rustic.   This wine will be a beautiful fit for everything from tandoori chicken and chickpea curry to roasted root vegetables and flank steak.  

We expect that this wine will age for at least 10 years, but this wine is really built for now through 2023. 

Reviews:

"This very dark ruby-colored unique blend from Meeker opens with a pleasant mild acai berry and boysenberry bouquet with a hint of faint strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium-bodied, balanced, and a little juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty mild stewed black plum with notes of gentle oak and faint minerality mixed in. I also detected hints of acai berry. blackberry and dried herbs in the background. The finish is dry and well-managed mild tannins drift away nicely. This wine would pair perfectly with beef bourguignon." - Ken's Wine Guide 91pts.
