The idea of making a single varietal wine is the Nemesis to the ethos of winemaker Matt Trevisan's work. With a normally high percentage of syrah each year, this brooding blend is the closest LC will ever come to producing a single varietal wine. 

 

2014

77% Syrah, 11% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 2% Cinsault

Syrah gets its time to shine and grabs ahold with a firm grip. The wafting scent of a late summer barbecue, charred meats and charcoal is followed with comforting maple syrup and sweet baking spices. Blueberry dreams come from within a cedar box. Blood and guts, iron and tar, buttressed by boysenberry. Deeply inviting, this wine gives off layer after layer of rich aromas and flavors. Aged in concrete and new French oak. Drink now through 2024.

Release Date: Fall 2016


2013

82% Syrah, 14% Mourvèdre, 4% Grenache

2012

72% Syrah, 21% Mourvèdre, 7% Grenache

An intoxicating concoction of syrah, mourvèdre and a splash of grenache, 2012 Nemesis is rich and saturating on the palate with a light-footed jump at the mid-tongue. The fruits of ripe raspberry, black currant and plum interweave to form a flavor explosion. Aged in 25% new French oak 500L puncheons and concrete tanks for the remainder. The wine is approachable today yet retains enough tannin for future exploration. Drink at 58F and enjoy the ride. 370 cases produced

Release Date: Fall 2014, SOLD OUT


2011

87% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 3% Grenache

The Nemesis is constantly transforming itself from vintage to vintage. If you asked what it was like to grow syrah, I would say “easy.” If you asked what it takes to grow great syrah, I would say “determination.” 2011 Nemesis is a gorgeous wine. Big, but not too big. Bright but not too bright. Delicious? Absolutely!  As always, the wine is derived from my best blocks of syrah. There are no “Ifs, Ands, or Buts,” just great fruit, delicately blended into the Nemesis. Syrah, mourvèdre, grenache. Drink now through 2023.

SOLD OUT


2010

77% Syrah, 18% Mourvèdre, 5% Grenache

Oh you are in for such a treat! Layers and layers of bacon fat, cocoa, and boysenberries evolve from this syrah driven wine. Dark and brooding, yet extremely balanced with elegantly lush tannins that coat the mouth. Your taste buds will be excited with each and every sip.

A compilation of 77% syrah, 18% mourvèdre, and 5% grenache, the fruit originates from Roxie Block (a block at our Estate Vineyard named after my daughter), Booker, Denner, and Caliza Vineyards. Aged in 500L French oak for 19 months and bottle aged for the last 3 months. The wine is ready to drink now or can be cellared for another 7 years. I cannot say enough good things about this wine!

SOLD OUT


2009

87% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 3% Grenache

From our most distinctive blocks of syrah, mourvèdre, and grenache comes 2009 Nemesis: a dark, unrelenting flavor experience. The aromatics hint at ripe blackberries, blueberries, graham cracker crust, and nuances of cigar. The wine is firmly structured to create pleasure over the next 4-8 years.

SOLD OUT


2008

82% Syrah, 14% Mourvèdre, 4% Grenache

In addition to the huge notes of fresh black and blue berries, intense aromatics of Mission fig, cinnamon, cardamom and sweet piecrust waft out of the glass. The mid-palate is so lush and velvety, yet still showcases that quintessential dusty Paso minerality. After a sip, the wine lingers, allowing you to chew on the supple tannins and ruminate on the sweet baking spices for minutes. Have a glass all by itself, or enjoy it with a roasted tenderloin of beef and braised winter root vegetables. This wine will age gracefully for 5-8 years.

SOLD OUT


2007

80% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre, 5% Grenache

Weighing in at 80% syrah, 15% mourvèdre and 5% grenache, this wine is always a joy to make. A deep redish purple with aromatics of blueberry cheesecake and tar. The Nemesis coats the mouth with a sensory explosion that screams out boysenberry, cola, and fresh roasted meat. As great as the wine is today, I feel the wine will age gracefully over the next 8 years.

SOLD OUT


2006

82% Syrah, 14% Mourvèdre, 4% Grenache

Appropriately tight for those who prefer more ageability. This wine’s lush and creamy mouthfeel is packed with flavors of blueberry, boysenberry, smoke and tar as well as subtle hints of oak and vanilla bean. If you decide to drink this wine now, it will benefit tremendously from an hour in a decanter. Drink now through 2013.

SOLD OUT


2005

85% Syrah, 11% Mourvèdre, 4% Grenache

This is essentially a syrah wine with a twist of character. Fermented in open tops for 30 days with both punch downs and delestage techniques employed to saturate the color and flavor while leaving a soft and silky texture. Aged in small French casks for 20 months and bottled 4 months prior to release. This wine is drinkable now, yet can be aged for 4-6 years.

SOLD OUT


2004

80% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre, 5% Grenache

From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Exhibits an open-knit, flamboyant, exuberant nose of black fruits, flowers and spice. It displays great intensity on the palate, a savory, broad, expansive, mouth feel, superb purity, and a long, layered finish. Consume this stunning red over the next decade or more.”

SOLD OUT


2003

82% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 8% Grenache

From Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:

 “Sadly, only 200 cases were produced of this exceptionally fragrant effort. Aromas of acacia flowers, blackberry liqueur, camphor, and a hint of barrique are followed by a wine with tremendous stuffing, a rich, full-bodied, multilayered mid-palate, and a ripe finish displaying sweet, but noticeable tannin. It will benefit from 1-2 years of cellaring, and should age easily for a decade.”
