2016 Twist of Fate Mourvèdre
2016 Twist of Fate Mourvèdre

Once again this wine is all about the art of seduction. Leather and lace and everything that goes down to the dark side of the Rhône spectrum.  Black cherry and old worn leather are followed by mesquite and lavender. The palate is the full spectrum of black cherry, Teriyaki,  cracked black peppercorn,  beef jerky, and just a touch of warm oozing blackberry pie filling.

Wine Profile
Ratings
90+ Jeb Dunnuck The 2016 Twist Of Fate is all whole cluster Mourvèdre from a site in Paso Robles. Brought up all in new barrel, it has a beautiful bouquet of red plum, Asian spice, Acacia flowers, and earth. It's medium-bodied, elegant and silky on the palate, with an almost understated style. Give it a year and drink bottles over the following 7-8 years.
Vineyard Notes
Alta Colina Vineyard is located in Paso Robles off of Adelaida Road. A steep hillside vineyard that captures the owner's belief of making the wines in the Vineyard. With that in mind, Bob, along with his daughter Maggie remain committed to translating their incredible site into every bottle. To achieve the highest quality, they organically farm 31 acres atop two of Paso Robles’ highest altitude slopes of fractured shale. The steepness and exposure of their Adelaida District property dictate what they grow and how they farm.
Production Notes
Vinification: 100% whole cluster, de-stemmed, not crushed, open top fermenters, punch downs 5 x day and foot stomped
Winemaker Notes
Great hillside fruit; great mineral backbone with fruit taking center stage. Bandol inspired, Chateauneuf du Pape influenced but California terroir driven.
