K&L Notes

This single vineyard Rhone Blend consits of 55% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 12% Syrah, 3% Counoise coming from the Glenrose Vineyard. Established in 1994, Glenrose Vineyard represents some of the oldest plantings of Rhone varietals on the west side of Paso Robles. One of the only terraced vineyards in the area, sitting at an elevation of 1500’-1700’, owner Don Rose bulldozed the hillside into terraces to expose the limestone and stress the vines. The vines are planted on extremely chalky, high pH soils, which combined with great rootstock and clonal selections, produce mineral driven, aromatic fruit. While Glenrose is planted to Italian, French, Spanish and Portuguese varietals, we source almost entirely French Beaucastel clones. The idea behind this wine is to create a snapshot of the entire property as each varietal has a Song of its Own and brings something special to the wine. The Grenache, Syrah 99 and Counoise were cofermented with 50% whole cluster. The Mourvedre and Shiraz 7 were blended in three months later and the final blend spent 12 months in neutral oak. This wine shows the classic kirsch, Provencal herbs, and roast meats expected from great Grenache based wines.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
