The CrossHatch white Rhone blend is sunshine in a bottle. The Viognier and Marsanne were both picked on the same day and co-fermented together creating a truly complex unique wine. The Viognier adds aromas and flavors of apricot and honey while the Marsanne adds a balancing minerality and acidity. Drink our 2014 CrossHatch with some fried chicken at a summer picnic.
The CrossHatch is a creation that Carr came up with that plays with different blends. Each blend is co-fermented together to produce a fun and distinct flavor profile. Our 2012 CrossHatch blend of Grenache and Syrah has subtle blackberry flavors with an earthy quality which pairs great with grilled meat. This dish is sure to please your palate.
Cross hatching is an artistic technique using closely spaced intersecting lines to create shape, shading and definition in a drawing. Pulling inspiration from this technique CrossHatch uses a co-fermentation technique blending both varietals before the fermentation process to create a new dimension and flavor profile to the wine. Our 2012 CrossHatch blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc is a great accompaniment to this earthy and flavorful dish.
Each year Ryan creates a special Pinot Noir just for the Luxury Club. He created a single barrel of clone 777 Pinot Noir from Turner Vineyard which is just enough for this Spring Shipment going out in March. The wine is elegant with a silky mouthfeel and soft tannins. The sweetness from the fennel enhances the subtle herbal and fruit flavors of this Pinot Noir.
