2014 Prelude – $28

2013 Prelude

55% Grenache – 25% Syrah – 20% Mourvèdre

The light color and the high percentage of the Grenache lead to Prelude being a lighter-styled, easy drinking summer wine.

The Grenache is the real star of this wine. It’s responsible for the strawberry and red fruit in the nose and palate, while adding brightness and opening up the bigger, tighter Mourvèdre and Syrah. Syrah brings tannin and musky aromatics to the blend while Mourvèdre provides structure, backbone, and finish.

Prelude is a blend of 55% Grenache noir , 25% Syrah, and 20% Mourvedré.
