A cellar-born blend that plays with whole cluster and varietal co-fermentations, the Perfectionist is vinified and aged in concrete.
68% Syrah, 17% Mourvèdre, 15% Grenache
This is my playful attempt at being less concerned with perfection and focusing on being dynamic, changing things on the fly and creating a wine that is truly its own. Perfectionist uses the coolest climate syrah blocks from the estate, we ferment them whole cluster, getting a phenolic structure that stands out from other wines. Cofermenting with the grenache and mourvédre allows for a rare, individualistic wine. This is the opposite of diligent blending. Aged in concrete. Drink through 2023

77% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre, 11% Grenache
A gorgeous wine that tells the story of pursuit. A 100% estate wine that starts its life in concrete. Whole cluster syrah is co-fermented with grenache and mourvèdre. Left on the skins for 35 days, the wine exhibits dark complexities of fig, liquorice and dried sage. This is the second vintage of this wine and I believe a wine with this structure will last for a decade or more. Enjoy!

Never stop learning and never give up. Does perfectionism exist? A whole-cluster fermented, concrete aged wine that exhibits earth and tar subtleties with a chewy minerality. A gorgeous wine in the eyes of the beholder. Dark black fruits of fig, blackberry, and liquorice spice evolve into a life changing experience. Perhaps the most food friendly wine to date. Drink now through 2020.
