Description
 
Las Aves is our continued exploration of Rhone varietals married with Cabernet Sauvignon as done brilliantly in the Priorat region of Spain. Our Niemi Vineyard Carignane, planted in the 1950s, works beautifully with Cabernet Sauvignon, lending an earth and structure component to the ripe fruit profile of the Cabernet. The blend is made complete by the floral character of Sawyer Vineyard Grenache and the density and midpalate of Lawer Vineyard Syrah. With a smaller Carignane crop in 2013, the blend this vintage has more inclusion of Lawer Syrah, which may be our finest vintage from this site.

47% Syrah 19% Cabernet Sauvignon 17% Grenache 17% Carignane

Saturated ruby color. Aromatic dark berry fruit of cassis and blackberry with an intriguing forest floor element. The palate is layered with the dark berry fruit viscosity, tempered by the earth and soil note from the Carignane. The textural impression is rich without being heavy, with the fine-grained tannins completely woven into the fabric of fruit.
