2021 Très Violet 1.5L Magnum

94 Points - Wine Spectator
"Handsomely structured and expressive, with cherry fruit leather and raspberry flavors laced with crushed stone, cured meat and cracked pepper, building tension toward refined tannins. Mourvèdre, Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2031. 1,200 cases made." Tim Fish, Senior Editor, Napa

Très Violet is our Estate’s take on a traditional Rhone style red wine. By combining the depth and richness of Syrah, spice and leather from Mourvèdre with bright fruit elegance of Grenache, we can produce a multifaceted yet cohesive wine. In this way the Très Violet is perhaps the fullest expression of our Estate.

Personally signed by Calcareous winemaker Jason Joyce, these 1.5L magnum bottles are perfect for gifting, entertaining, and aging.

Tasting Notes
Apparent from the first drop to hit the glass, this is a wine of great depth and intensity. Densely structured and full of dark fruit and earthy richness, demonstrating a more powerful expression of Mourvedre and Grenache that is distinct from highly extracted Syrah. A balanced core fills out the mid-palate while a tantalizing blend of fresh acidity and oak aged weight meld to create a finish perfect for tasting a subtle lingering wine or preparing the palate for the next bite of wild mushroom ragu over parmesan polenta.
