77% Syrah, 12% Grenache, 7% Mourvedre, 4% Graciano
The Nemesis is constantly transforming itself from vintage to vintage. If you asked what it was like to grow syrah, I would say “easy.” If you asked what it takes to grow great syrah, I would say “determination." The wine is always derived from our most distinctive blocks of syrah, mourvedre, and grenache. The 2017 vintage: A savory blueberry pie with whipped cream and graham cracker crust. What else can I say? This wine has a big and gorgeous nose, chased on the palate by flavors of roasted meats, toast, and cinnamon. The Nemesis is a pleasure to drink. The mouthfeel is soft and luscious, an extrovert of a wine. With each sip, more and more layers are revealed. The wine is syrah-dominate but the grenache, mourvedre and graciano do their part to impart finesse and a breadth of freshness. Drink now through 2030.
