Our 2014 Escondrijo (the name means ”hideaway” in Spanish) is a blend of 55% grenache, 39% syrah, and 6% petite sirah. This wine offers a lovely walk in a rose garden - potpourri, bouquet garni, and hints of orange peel alongside mixed berry and baking spices. As feminine as the nose suggests, the wine holds nothing back on the palate, delivering concentration and layers of fruit, savory earthiness, and a slate graphite vein of minerality. Aged for 18 months in 100% French oak, (roughly 30% new) in larger format 300L hogshead and 400L puncheons. 

Technical Information

Santa Lucia Clay Loam - This soil lends itself to brighter, oral aromatics and lower pH. Being a heavier soil it also lends itself to a rounder mouthfeel.

This wine was given to me as a gift, and I was very impressed. I've produced, sold, and these days, consume wine for over 40 years, and I was very impressed by this wine.
