The 2013 Carte Blanche Three Peaks is comprised of 90% Syrah and 10% Grenache. Hailing from Bennett Valley in Sonoma, the Judge Vineyard sits amidst three mountains, pulling in the cool Pacific winds and fog. A gentle sloping vineyard full of uplifted volcanic soil exudes evolutionary rocks reminiscent of the Northern Rhone. A plush, full-bodied Syrah; the wine has ample structure to age.
A touch of Grenache highlights notes of wild red fruits and a hint of cardamom and spice. The 2013 Three Peaks strikes a harmonious blend of savory notes and beautiful fruit. Green tobacco leaf, hints of mint and bacon fat are enveloped by black cherry, baked raspberry and cocoa nib mingle on the nose. Equally layered on the palate, all of these elements emerge slowly as the wine opens to a ample mid-palate and generous finish.
