Winemaker Notes

Wavelength's claim to fame lies in the unusual pairing of Syrah and Cabernet Franc – fifty/fifty. It is unlike any other wine that we make – or any other people make – that we know about. The cool climate of Sugarloaf Mountain coupled with deep aging in barrels produces a great wine.

Blend: Syrah 65%, Cabernet Franc 35%

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

The 2010 Wavelength Proprietary Red is an intriguing blend of 65% Syrah and 35% Cabernet Franc. Its saturated purple color is followed by aromas of flowers, blueberries, blackberries, forest floor and spice. The wine hits the mouth with medium to full body, glorious fruit, sensational purity, wonderful texture and length, and a finish that lasts 40-45 seconds. Usually blending Cabernet Franc and Syrah together would not be a high priority on most winemaker’s agenda, but Maltus marches to the beat of a different drummer and clearly has something special on his hands. This is a brilliant Syrah that should evolve for at least a decade.

ST 92
International Wine Cellar

Bright red-ruby. Black raspberry, blackberry, mocha and licorice on the nose, plus a decadent suggestion of underbrush. Dense, lush and rich, with dark berry flavors complicated by game, earth and chocolatey oak and lifted by a floral element. A very successful, harmonious blend in which both varieties come through clearly. Finishes with building oak tannins that call for patience. 92(+?) points

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Rich and hearty, it’s an unusual Napa Valley blend of 65% Syrah and 35% Cabernet Franc, fruity in bright red raspberry and dark plum. High-toned amidst its luxurious mouthfeel, it’s well-developed with plenty of structure and mellowed tannins. The herbal element is underplayed, with the tobacco more prominent.

World's End
Described by Robert Parker as a 'visionary, self-styled revolutionary' and the 'English winemaking guru,' Jonathan Maltus cut his teeth in the fine wine business during the 'garage revolution' in Saint Emilion, France during the 1990's. Chateau Teyssier, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Estate, has expanded from 14 to 125 acres, into one of the main players of Saint Emilion (capturing three 5 Stars from Decanter with the 2010 vintage – including its flagship wine, Le Dôme).

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
