Force Majeure Collaboration Series Vi 2011

Collaboration Series VI is a Southern Rhone blend deftly crafted by James Mantone of Syncline. While many Southern Rhone-styled wines are Grenache-dominant, we chose to emphasize a variety we feel has great potential in Washington State: Mourvedre. Our approach is to make Mourvedre the major component of Collaboration Series VI, and to use Grenache and Syrah for added character and complexity. James brings insight and knowledge to this project from his years of experience farming and making wine from Rhone varieties. We feel that having James and manager Ryan Johnson collaborate on this wine is a great way to push the boundaries of winegrowing in Washington. [+]
