Where do we begin?!?! -- After the first couple of vintages in Bennett Valley - 2013, 2014 - Andy got a huge score when he got the contract for the Broken Leg Vineyard. It's the only place in the Anderson Valley with gorgeous Syrah. Simultaneously he got access to some beautiful Grenache from the Fountaingrove AVA and Mourvedre from the Sonoma Mountain AVA; these prime vineyards from the Donelan boys, known for amazing Rhone varietals. Fast forward to September of 2020, when Andy knew it was about time to blend the barrels and bottle. In about 3 months since its release into our tasting room, it has overcome its bottle shock and grown to impress Rhone fans and California fans alike. Great legs - err, Broken Legs... haha - in the glass. It's fruit-forward on the nose; the red fruit of the Grenache, the funk of the Mourvedre, and some leather and spice from the Syrah. A classic nose. The mouth is balanced, a little tanginess from the Grenache, richness in the mid-palate from the Syrah and Mourvedre... the finish goes on and on.
