2017 Alphabet Soup

NEW! 2017 Alphabet Soup

Alphabet Soup was born from the 2015 vintage when Jared topped off a barrel off a blend barrel of Roussanne & Grenache Blace that was ~60% full with red Grenache. The result was shocking and delicious!

El Dorado

Alphabet Soup was born from the 2015 vintage when Jared topped off a barrel of Grenache Blanc/Roussanne that was about 60% full with red wine (Grenache Noir). The result was shocking and delicious! 2017 is an adventurous blend of white and red grapes. The result again is absolutely delicious, should be served chilled like a white wine and will leave you wanting more. But be warned, only 33 cases were made so this fun little experiment is exclusively offered to our Wine Club Members.

Tasting Note:

Our staff says it tastes like adult kool-aid. This actually makes sense to us as this is packed with our juiciest notes like pomegranate seeds, white cherries, and berry tart with lemon crème topping. A lifted acidity throughout makes this red-white blend a thirst quenching wine when served chill. And it is just as much fun to stick your nose into with a perfumed focus of gardenia and orange blossoms, and strawberry puree.
