Halcon Vineyards "Esquisto" Yorkville Highlands Mendocino County 2016

70% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah, all co-fermented. Aged in puncheons, but no new oak – this is all about the purity of the fruit. From one of the highest vineyards in California, which, together with the naturally cooler climate of Mendocino, results in a particularly intense GSM blend: concentrated aromas of smoke, raspberry, blackberry, and cherry, lifted by perfumed aromas of wild flowers. Gripping tannins and vibrant acidity on the palate give lasting structure.
