Description Technical Specs
2008 Elevation Sensation Alta Mesa Vineyard, Santa Barbara County | 340 Cases Produced
A blend of 82% Grenache and 18% Mourvedre. This wine was aged for 42 months in a combination of 1 year old hogsheads, and 600 and 800 liter demi-muid. The wine was bottled without fining or filtration. Year after year this is our most popular wine with consumers and critics alike. It attacks the palate with amazing fruit, complexity, structure and concentration. Start with an amazing vineyard, extended skin contact during fermentation, stem inclusion, co-fermentation and barrel ageing and you have a recipe for success. The Elevation Sensation label was inspired by our high elevation vineyards. Drink it up now and enjoy the upfront Grenache element or age it and let the Mourvedre come in to play.
