Tasting Notes
“Shading” is an artistic technique in which variations of dark elements come together to produce a much more complex, overall image. It doesn’t get much darker than the two Rhône Valley varietals of Grenache and Syrah. These two varietals are co-fermented to produce a profound, deeply shaded garnet blend that exhibits aromas of ripe plum and black pepper. Flavors of deep, black cherry and spice such as cinnamon and pepper collaborate to create a beautifully constructed balance on the palate. The richness of this wine is carried all the way through its finish and leaves a satisfyingly, bold impression.
Winemaker Notes
The Shading is a red wine blend made with 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah from Quail Ridge Vineyard in Santa Ynez Valley. The grapes were picked, crushed and co-fermented together and then aged 18 months in French oak barrels, 20% new oak. Pair with BBQ ribs.
