Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Anderson Valley, Sonoma County, Napa Valley, Mendocino County. The very rough and unscientific formula is this: about a third Bordeaux varieties, about a third Rhone varieties, and about a third other varieties dominated by Zinfandel with a bit of this or that peppered in. An organic Carignan vineyard in Redwood Valley continues to expand its influence in Mordecai, acting as a bridge between the Rhone and Bordeaux lots.
Production Notes
Aging for 14 months in French oak – new oak on all varietals except the Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Sirah, both of which saw about 40% new oak.
Winemaker Notes
An enticing nose of pepper, violets, cigar and cassis. On the palate it is a mouthwatering mélange of red berry and plum flavors backed by earthy tones of herb roasted meat and fresh black trumpet giving way to a spiceladen finish.
Other Notes
24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Zinfandel, 15% Tannat, 14% Malbec, 10% Petite Sirah, 9% Merlot, 5% Carignan, 4% Syrah, 3% Grenache
