This is a fabulous little Rhone blend from Monterey County. Winemaker and surfer Ian Brand first worked at Bonny Doon, Coastview Vineyard and Big Basin Winery before launching his own label. He also makes a chardonnay, vigonier, rosé, Meritage and petite sirah. He sources fruit from around the central coast.

Winery Tasting Notes: “White flower, plums, chaparral and sandal- wood on the nose. Bright red fruit on the palate. Finishes with red plum, hints of tobacco and umami notes. The persistent finish is bright, fruit-focused and coats the mouth.”

TMI: A blend of 42% grenache, 42% mourvedre and 16% syrah. 14.5% alcohol; aged 11 months in neutral barrels; just 260 cases produced.
