Still just a baby, right now. The Overthinker vintages catalog our estate plantings into a liquid photo journal of each year that we grow and produce wine from our estate. Originally started with the 2007 vintage and with ten years of production, we are just hitting our stride. The wine shows great balance and a tannin structure that gently coats the mouth leaving it watering for more. The blend for Overthinker changes slightly over the years, but the goal remains the same: grow and produce the best wine possible. You will not find another wine with as much passion as this wine delivers. Drink now through 2035.

Dark, glistening ruby. A complex, deeply perfumed bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, incense and pungent flowers, along with suggestions of vanilla, woodsmoke and olive paste that build in the glass. Alluringly sweet black raspberry, boysenberry, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors she superb focus and are enlivened by zesty spice and mineral flourishes. Discreet, fine-grained tannins sneak in on an impressively long, blue-fruit- and floral-driven finish that shows zero rough edges.

Lastly, the 2017 Overthinker checks in as 52% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 9% Carignan, 7% Mourvèdre, and 5% Graciano. It has a beautiful bouquet of kirsch liqueur, wildflowers, candied violets, and orange blossom. This carries to a full-bodied red with a rounded, elegant texture, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It's beautiful today yet will keep for at least a decade.
