Winery Note:

Bright ripe strawberries and candied cherries lead this vibrant blend of Willow Creek District fruit. In 2015, we faced a deep reduction in yields of Syrah, but Grenache took the opportunity to jump to the head of the class, leading this blend. Healthy acidity comes across with notes of rhubarb, violets and blood orange. Soft aromas of sandalwood intermingle with the delicacy of falling rose petals. Chalky tannins pay homage to the calcareous mudstone and shale the vines have been raised in. Aged in a 3000L French oak foudre and a 2000L concrete tank. Drink now through 2024.

Wine AdvocateComposed of 54% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 14% Syrah and 2% Tannat, the 2015 Rising Tides Proprietary Red offers a medium to deep garnet-purple color and nose of smoky bacon, dusty earth and black pepper over a core of red currants, raspberry preserves, wild blueberries and a hint of wild thyme. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with spicy red and blue fruits, framed by fine-grained tannins and finishing with great length.
