Grenache fermented and aged in concrete tank, Mourvèdre aged in a 600L new French Oak barrel, and Syrah aged in new 228L Burgundy barrels. A wonderful structure gives backbone to this medium-full bodied wine that carresses the palate.
New French oak 228L to 600L barrels and concrete tank
On the nose and palate, kirsch and crushed rock aromas and flavors lead to olive tapenade, licorice and dried meats. This is the perfect wine for summertime grills and cool, winter nights.

"The Grenache-dominated 2013 Miscellaneous Stuff (there's 25% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre) is a spice-loaded, Mediterranean-scented, ripe savory and peppery effort. It offers tons of character, full-bodied weight, ripe tannin and a chewy, rich finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. Like all of Jeff's wines, it's not shy, mid-weight or boring."
Alta Colina Vineyard is this year's source for this blend.
