    Winemaker's Notes:

    #34 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

    Possibly the most opulent and structured "Offering" yet, the 2008 is Curt's closest approximation to the Chateauneauf du Pape cuvees that have been his guiding light. Aromas of smoaked meats, well worn bicycle gears, strawberry jam and spiced chocolate greet a robust palate of sweet cinnamon, brambles, apple butter and bonfire.

    Blend: 41% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 275 Syrah, 2% Viognier

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fresh, floral, grapey wild berry and blackberry flavors are snappy, intense and vibrant, yet also delicate and firm, with a minerally edge. Lively, vivid and detailed, this ends with a mixed thread of berry notes. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Viognier. Drink now through 2020. 960 cases made.

    The 2008 The Offering bursts from the glass with a rush of blackberries, blueberries, sweet spices and licorice. It shows good inner perfume and sweetness in a super-ripe, racy style. The finish is round and harmonious. The Offering is 41% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 27% Syrah and 2% Viognier that spent 22 months in French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.
