Grenache / Syrah / Petit Verdot
Los Angeles County
Tremor is a blend of 55% Grenache, 35% Syrah, and 10% Petit Verdot. The Grenache, which is always the headliner in this Los Angeles cuvée, comes from a vineyard near the infamous San Andreas Fault, which played a central role in defining the region’s geological profile. Each year the blend of this wine changes, yet the elegance and charm of the high desert Grenache always shines through.
Sugarplums, strawberry drizzle, red currants and black raspberry dominate the fresh aromatics, backed up by a touch of powdered earth. Bright layers of red fruits, cherries, and finely crushed gravel greet the textured palate, with fresh figs and a kiss of savory bramble. Silky, ripe tannins and amber persist on the lingering, fruit-laden finish.
In the foothills of the northeast corner of Los Angeles lies the Swayze Family Vineyard. At 3,000 ft. elevation on a mild, almost imperceptible arid slope, Grenache flourishes and produces a soft, red fruit dominant wine. The Syrah from Lobo Canyon Vineyard in the Santa Monica Mountains brings palate weight, texture, and dark fruits, while the Petit Verdot adds structure, earthiness, and a long finish.
Tremor was aged for 22 months in 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels. 110 cases produced.
