2014 Pendulum (Grenache + Syrah Blend)

35.00

The Pendulum has swung again! This vintage contains a higher proportion of Grenache (60%), shifting the fruit aromas towards the red color spectrum, with elevated fresh fruit and lively balanced acid. Once again, the wine’s bouquet blasts from the glass, showing rich notes of currant and red cherries, supported by fresh dry herbs and subtle blue berry fruit. High toned strawberry and raspberry notes emerge with time in the glass. Classic and subtle oak aromas present themselves as walnut shell and baked pie crust. Tobacco leaf and humidor nuances round out a complex nose. Powerful flavors include dried herbs, red plums and black cherries, fennel and tobacco. The texture in the mouth is both dense and lively, filling yet balanced, showing ultra-soft tannins and good acidity. The wine finishes long, with lingering notes of toasty French oak and expressive, ripe fruit. We love the wines of Gigondas and Chateauneuf du Pape and are very happy that our 2014 Pendulum blend reminds us of the best we’ve had from these regions.
