Winemaker's Notes:

#34 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

Possibly the most opulent and structured "Offering" yet, the 2008 is Curt's closest approximation to the Chateauneauf du Pape cuvees that have been his guiding light. Aromas of smoaked meats, well worn bicycle gears, strawberry jam and spiced chocolate greet a robust palate of sweet cinnamon, brambles, apple butter and bonfire.

Blend: 41% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 275 Syrah, 2% Viognier
