Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Deeply opaque purple hues indicate the full extraction achieved in this vintage. The nose is heavy with rich dark red fruit, cola nut and hints of mocha. The upfront palate showcases raspberry jam, licorice, tar, and loam which typify red Rhone varietals from our Estate. Earthy tannins mix with juicy acidity leading to a generous finish that begs for wood-fired pizza, duck or lamb dishes.
Vineyard Notes
The 2014 Tres Violet comes completely from the Calcareous Vineyard. Planted in 2002, this site is now starting to truly show its potential. The name Calcareous comes from the geological term for calcium carbonate soils, whose presence here cannot be overstated. With soil pH readings above 9 and planted on southwest facing slopes grading near 50%, this site is extremely harsh and naturally supplies yields of less than 2 tons to the acre. These factors combine to produce fruit of uncommon density, fruit, and structural elements.

Capping off my first year as a wine member, and out of all the red wines I have had this is by far the best. It was initially quite strong but after a few sips it just soothes your palate.
