Cellar Craft Limited Edition
April 2012 Release

Each of these Red Mountain varieties has been offered in prior Limited Release offerings to great acclaim. Red Mountain Cabernet has been awarded more gold medals than any other Cabernet in recent competitions and both the Syrah and Merlot have shown similar success. While Red Mountain Cabs, Syrahs and Merlots continue to receive acclaim as single varietal wines, Red Mountain has been developing an identity and solid reputation for unique blends combing all three, as we are doing with this offering. This offering has been styled by our Washington supplier to mimic his most successful blend: 50% Cabernet; 35% Syrah and 15% Merlot... Both juices and skins will share these proportions. Of particular note, the Syrah stock will include a combination of Cote Rotie and Hermitage clones which have proven to be particularly well suited to Red Mountain.

The wine will be truly special and unique on several levels! The wine will be of the highest quality stock available anywhere. The power of RM Cab with its black currant, unique notes of orange essence and notable minerality and chalk will drive the blend. Syrah will add brightness, black fruit and peppery spice while Merlot helps integrate and soften the whole for earlier approachability. Two-stage Hungarian oak treatment will add its distinctive nuances and provide the structure upon which the fruit will be built. To say that we are excited to be able to offer this wine is an understatement.

Cellar at least a year and up to 3 or 4. Food pairings include your favorite beef, lamb, game and pork dishes as well as hearty pastas, fowl, pizza or wherever you would be reaching for a red wine but want to make the meal more special.

This kit is $146.95 at Curds and Wine
