2019 Rosé

Catapult, Paderewski, and York Mountain Vineyards, Paso Robles
62% Mourvèdre, 21% Grenache, 17% Syrah

 

“With delicate notes of strawberry, hay, honeysuckle, crisp peach, and sweet lemon/lime, Mourvèdre makes a huge impression at 62% of this irresistible MGS Rhône rosé blend…This rosé soars across the palate in a yin/yang balance between fruit, flowers, wet stones, saline, and zingy acid. This is a wine that we crave all day long.” – Jordan Fiorentini

2019 Extended Age White

Catapult, Paderewski, and York Mountain Vineyards, Paso Robles
47% Grenache Blanc | 42% Viognier | 11% Roussanne

This ‘winter white’ is the same blend as our earlier release of 2019 Epoch White, but with 8 more months of age in a French oak cask (foudre) and no filtration. The additional time in wood yields a richer wine, but with delicacy and great finesse. Texture is heightened, acidity is softened, yet its minerality and freshness remain. Aromas are other-worldly, jumping out of the glass initially with ripe bosc pear, key lime pie, vanilla bean, wet rock, and citrus blossom. With air, the wine softens more, becomes creamier, and flavors develop into white peach, honey suckle, sweet ginger, and lemon curd. The palate adds gravitas to the aromas and is best described in drawing, hence the reason it is the first Epoch White to receive a VINPRESSION™. While sensational now, this white will continue to develop with several months to years in the bottle.

“In our game changing 2016 Veracity, Mourvédre outnumbers Grenache (51 to 36%) as this blend’s new leading lady.   Time and time again, Mourvédre adds elegance, gravitas and elegance to our beloved GSM, and it has finally tipped the scales.”

Purchase:

2016 Ingenuity

54% Syrah, 20% Petite Sirah, 16% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache
Paderewski and Catapult Vineyards
Willow Creek District, Paso Robles

“The myriad of juicy, herbal and reductive aromas at first sniff are indicative of the four varieties that make up the 2016 Ingenuity bottling – Syrah, Petite Sirah, Mourvèdre and Grenache.  The healthy dollop of Petite Sirah in this year’s blend, 20%, gives great palate delineation and more seriousness to the blend.”
