2019 New Glou

2019 NEW GLOU

Chuggable, delicious and vibrant with exactly the right amount of big girl funk.

California

129 tons crushed here at 1340 5th Street and now it's time to party! That about sums up the spirit of our NEW GLOU. Beaujolais may have been first to go global with the idea of bottling up a first taste of the new vintage after the long and demanding harvest, but West Coast Nouveau is now in its 4th year and shows no signs of slowing down.

Chuggable, delicious and vibrant - our blend of eight varietals from four vineyards will knock your socks off. Our core blend is Marsanne + Mourvedre/Grenache. But as we’ve always said, blending is where the magic happens.

•\tLot 1, 43%: Fenaughty Vineyard Marsanne with a wee bit of Roussanne & Vermentino

•\tLot 2, 31%: Co-fermented Girard Vineyard Mourvedre & Fenaughty Grenache

•\tLot 3, 10.5%: Testa Vineyard Merlot Rose

•\tLot 4, 10.5%: Fenaughty Vineyard Syrah

•\tLot 5, 5%: Cloud Vineyard Chardonnay

Tasting Note: The milky magenta color lends proof to this zero-zero infant of a wine that is full of life and promise but too delicious to keep around long enough to find out what the teenage years might bring. Strawberry, watermelon, lime zest and wait for it....pepper! The flavors are uninhibited and immediately obvious. A little spritz to tickle your palate and ensure one glass will not possibly be enough.
