2018 Turbine Red, Rhône Blend
Our Red Rhône-style blend is named for the iconic image of our wind turbine on the label and the 2018 vintage is comprised of 60% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 6% Mourvèdre, and 4% Petite Sirah. These grape varieties are sourced from Landa Vineyard, located in the low eastern foothills of the Mayacamas, tucked away just one mile from the town square in Sonoma. This site experiences warm days, and is protected from winds. This, combined with the cool valley nights, makes the vineyard ideal for slow, even ripening.
