2011 Juicy Rebound "Juicy Villages" Rhone Blend

SKU #1111834

"Juicy Rebound" is a new label from famed Napa Valley based is-there-anything-they-can't-do winemaking duo Douglas and Mary Danielak. As one of the original Rhone Rangers and founder of Jade Mountain, Douglas knows a thing or two about crafting delicious and authentic Rhone style wines from sites rich in terroir. Along with his wife Mary, former wine buyer for Oakville Grocery Company, they produce "Grand Cru" level California wines with an old world sensibility under their established label "Pont Neuf". Now they have introduced "Juicy Rebound" as boutique production of wines based on Rhone varietals. The 2011 "Juicy Villages" Rhone Blend is is just that: a juicy "villages" level Rhone style blend that has the punch of California but the charm of the Southern Rhone, styled for everyday drinking. 70% old vine Contra Costa County Mourvedre (from vines planted in 1880!) is the backbone and soul of the wine, providing intense red berry fruit aromas and flavors along with leather and smoky notes and grip on the back end. Ripe Sonoma County Grenache (3%) and Syrah (27%) add lift, depth, and complexity, lending some dark fruit notes, floral, and savory spice. Treat this like you would your favorite Cotes-du-Rhone and enjoy tonight with a "juicy" steak and frites or lamb burger. With only one hundred cases produced, this is sure to fly.

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.


- 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.
