2017 La Montaña
After a single vintage hiatus, La Montaña is back! A 50/50 blend of Syrah & Petit Verdot from our Cimarron Vineyard in WIllcox. Aged for two years in one new & one neutral 500 liter barrel made for us buy our pals Darnajou in Bordeaux, France. Racked only to bottle without fining or filtering. A super small lot of wine. Deep red. Smells like a great blood orange & some exotic Morrocon spice blend. Super juicy citrus tinged red fruited woodsy spice action in the mouth with great savory acid/tannin front of palate tactile interplay. Intesnsity without the sort of dull, confectionary fruit situation that can cause fatigue. Will make a great menumate with short rib type crispy pork belly-ish grilled ribeye engagements.
