Tête-à-Tête is our fun easy drinking assemblage of Mediterranean varietals. We blend it with current drinkability in mind, for drinking both at home and as a restaurant pour. We generally put it together from our younger vines and our more forward tasting barrel lots. 2012 was a year where most of our Rhône varietal lots had brightness and ripe fruit. This wine drinks like wines from solid Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages vintage: sappy, spicy, mouth-filling, and nuanced. It is an eminently enjoyable everyday bottle. The 2012 has our typically deep boysenberry fruit aromatics, with smoky/meaty/gamey complex flavor components that emphasize our terroir, and a lengthy creamy texture. This is a great California wine value!

Wine EnthusiastTake a walk on the wild side with this Rhône-style red. The meaty, spicy, earthy aromas lead to enjoyable fruit, spice and mocha flavors that rest on a firm bed of fine tannins and good acidity.
