The 2016 Rising Tides is fresh and lively with bright acidity; it's quite quenching. Red fruit is balanced by plush tannins. A true testament to the Willow Creek District, this wine will age well. Drink now through 2025.

The 2016 Rising Tides knocks it out of the park in 2016. A blend of 77% Grenache, 14% Mourvèdre, and 9% Syrah, this ruby-tinged beauty boasts thrilling notes of black raspberries, crushed flowers, dried herbs, and incense. Beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, and elegant, it's a sensational Grenache blend that does everything right. Brought up in a mix of concrete tanks and neutral larger French oak barrels, it's one of the finest vintages for this cuvée to date. Drink it any time over the coming 7-8 years.

Saturated ruby. Powerful red and dark berry preserve scents are complemented by suggestions of exotic spices, incense and floral pastilles, and a smoky mineral flourish adds urgency. Sappy and seamless in texture, offering vivacious raspberry and cherry liqueur and spicecake flavors energized by a strong jolt of juicy acidity. The blend of power and energy here is really impressive. Smooth, harmonious tannins build steadily on a strikingly long, seamless finish that leaves behind candied lavender and juicy red berry notes.

Plump, ripe and zesty, with lots of personality, offering baked cherry, bold black licorice and peppered herb flavors that take on speed toward lively but refined tannins. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Drink now through 2025. 550 cases made.
