2014 Beautiful Earth
Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre from Terra Bella, Shadow Canyon, Luna Matta and Alta Colina Vineyards complete the Syrah based Westside Paso Robles blend for Beautiful Earth.
The components of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre were fermented in small open top bins with 40% whole clusters included. The wine spent 20-25 days on the skins with a combination of pump-over and punch downs. Aged 20 months in a combination of 228, 265 and 500-liter French oak barrels, 20% new.
Notes of plum, French lavender, blueberries, mocha, sage, creosote and dark chocolate meld together with a generous, long and lifted finish.
