Overthinker

55% Syrah, 38% Grenache, 7% Mourvedre

The original estate blend, Overthinker pulls from the very first planting on the estate of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre in 2005. These dry-farmed vines have deep roots that produce dense little berries packed with flavor and structure. The wine is incredibly powerful, and yet unimaginably smooth for its young age. An iron fist wrapped in a velvet glove. When you breathe in the wine you are transported to the chalky granite and limestone cliffs dotted with oaks and redwood found throughout California. The fruit is rich and full, black raspberry, dates, blood orange, there is a new note to discover each time you return to the glass. Sweet pipe tobacco, cigar box, and clove hint at the Syrah and the new French oak in which it aged. A long and seemingly never ending finish revisits each of these notes with a firm tannin sweeping across your tongue. This wine is at the start of its life, and yet it already stuns with its density, complexity and perfect silky texture. Drink now through 2038.

Suggested pairings: Cassoulet, duck, venison, winter greens, Valençay goat cheese...
