Tasting Notes

We’ve always been passionate about the blending process: bringing multiple vineyards, blocks, fermentations, clones, even completely different varietals together to create something that’s more complete and interesting than the simple sum of its parts.

Emanation is a celebration of three of our favorite, wonderfully singular big reds and a triumph in the art of the blend itself. Dozens of trials led to a final composition of 1/3 each of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache. The different personalities of each grape work together exceptionally well, forming a unique and captivating red wine experience.

Syrah brings lush black fruit, smoke and bay leaf. Grenache adds lifted, peppery spice and fresh acid cut. All joined lovingly together by the elegant, structured framework, polished tannins and graceful red fruit of our Cabernet. More suave than a pure Rhone and more exotic than a straight Bordeaux varietal or blend, we think fans of both styles will find a lot to love here.

We gave our first Emanation more than an extra year of bottle age before releasing it, so don’t be shy. That said, the overall stuffing and structure of the vintage ensure a long life ahead.
