2016 Le P'tit Paysan "Le P'tit Pape" San Benito County Rhone Blend

SKU #1396777 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 Ian Brand’s flagship bottling just keeps getting better, yet stays reasonably priced. Light in the glass, this blend of 65% Grenache, 26% Syrah, 7% Mourvèdre and 2% Counoise offers lovely aromas of strawberry, red plum, white pepper, wild tomato and forest floor. It’s taut in texture on the sip, holding cranberry and strawberry flavors in check, as dried sagebrush carries through the finish. *Editors’ Choice* (MK)  (1/2019)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "Sourced from four vineyard sites in Monterey and San Benito, with soils based on granite or calcareous sandstone substrates. Picked at moderate sugars, spontaneously fermented in several lots ranging from 0-50% whole cluster depending on the lot. Fermented to dryness on skins. Aged in predominantly neutral, and a handful of once and twice used, barrels and puncheons for 17 months. Flavors are framed by clean, varietally expressive fruit, elegant texture and long, flavorful and delicate finish. 65% Grenache, 26% Syrah, 7% Mourvèdre, 2% Counoise."

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
