La Clarine Farm B Sides 2017
Mourvèdre/Syrah blend. The Mourvèdre comes from a plot at 2900’ near Camino, CA, on volcanic loam soil. This is a young-ish vine plot that previously went into our Jambalaia Rouge blend. Bright, full of energy, with a slight autumnal feel to the wine. The Syrah is from Sumu Kaw, also on volcanic soils at 3000'. These vines are mature, and lend a bit of gravitas to the blend, helping to anchor the wine and showing lovely flashes of smoke and soil. Everything was whole cluster fermented and aged in tank.
