Terre Rouge L'Autre

Terre Rouge Grenache L'Autre

L’Autre means “the other one”. Tis is now our top Rhône varietal blend. It has replaced Noir, a wine that was based on an old Placer County Grenache site that met its demise in 2002. Te Grenache for L’Autre is better clonal material grown in what we consider to be a better location. Te Duarte-Georgetown Vineyard is located at 2,500 feet near the town of the same name. Its Boomer series red, decomposed granite soils are what Grenache likes to grow in and the budwood is from Chateau Rayas, Beaucastel, and Remelluri in Rioja. Te Mourvèdre is from two sites: one in Placer County and one in El Dorado County. Te Syrah is from the Monarch Mine Vineyard, on a South-facing ridge to the North of the Georgetown Divide. Tis 2012 is very elegant, complex, and lively. Grenache’s savory plum and black cherry flavors, coupled with Mourvèdre’s smoky gaminess, and Syrah’s powerful punch and richness. Tis is a dead ringer for a top Southern Rhône, say a Châteauneuf-du-Pape or Gigondas.
