Winery Notes:

2014 was another dry year here in California but the lack of water was not altogether bad for vineyards. Yields were down, but the concentration and quality of the fruit was incredible. For the 2014 blend, Cabernet, Syrah and Zinfandel lead the pack, giving Mordecai its hallmark full-bodied weight and density. With less fruit available overall, we let these headliners do most of the work, adding bits of chocolatey Merlot, tarry Carignan and spicy Cabernet Franc and Cinsault to round out the blend.

The 2014 Mordecai blend is reminiscent of some of our favorite hot and dry wine regions in Europe. Think ripe red and blue fruited Cotes du Rhones with their scents of dried herbs and blackberry liqueur from wines grown on the black slates of the Priorat. But the wine remains distinctly California, taking us home with its comfortingly familiar wild summer berry plushness. Home is where the shade of the oak tree is just enough respite from the dry summer heat.

Varieties: 35% Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa, Sonoma), 28% Syrah (Anderson Valley, Sonoma), 22% Zinfandel (Dry Creek, Russian River), 6% Merlot (Alexander Valley), 4% Carignan (Mendocino), 3% Cabernet Franc (Sonoma), 2% Cinsault (Sonoma)

Aging: 15 months in French oak - a mix of new, second use & neutral depending on variety

Cooperage: Taransaud, Gamba, Francois Freres, Rousseau
