Donelan Cuvee Moriah 2012
This California Rhône-style red wine hails from the Dry Stack Vineyard. Unlike most California Grenache, this fruit is able to retain idyllic freshness that supports a very dense mid-palate, making Cuvee Moriah a dynamic and irresistible wine.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
A Chateauneuf-du-Pape inspired blend of 64% Grenache, 24% Mourvèdre and 12% Syrah, Moriah was not made in 2011 but roars back to life in 2012 light ruby red in color and fully refined in rose petal aromatics. Integrated and subtle, it's focused in bright red fruit and layered white pepper.
