Description

Tremor is a blend of 65% Grenache, 30% Merlot, and 5% Syrah. In the foothills of the northeast corner of the Antelope Valley lies the Neenach Ranch Vineyard. At 3,000 ft. elevation on a mild, almost imperceptible slope, the Grenache flourishes. Just a few miles south is Smith Family Vineyards and the Merlot that adds softness and floral characteristics to the wine. Lastly, and even further south, the Syrah from Alonso Family Vineyards gives the blend additional acidity and structure, while drawing out a magnificent finish. After aging on the lees for 6 months, the wine was racked and settled back into French oak barrels (35% new) where it stayed for an additional year. Fresh red plums, strawberries and quince burst out of the glass and envelop the nose as touches of violets, rose petals and honeysuckle weave themselves through. Sweet strawberry reduction and bing cherries greet the palate, with fresh figs and delicate acidity, rounded out with a touch of French oak delivering accents of baking spice and leather. Silky, ripe tannins and amber persist on the lingering finish.
