Andremily No.3, Vintage 2014
The 2014 Andremily No.3 is a sensational blend of 89% Syrah, 8% Mourvedre, and 3% Viognier. The fruit sources are White Hawk Vineyard in Cat Canyon, and Larner Vineyard in Ballard Canyon, with the Mourvedre coming from the Alta Mesa Vineyard in the Cuyama Valley. The Syrah was co-fermented with Viognier, and the final blend enjoyed just over 50% whole cluster. Andremily No.3 was raised in 60% new French barrique, and bottled after 23 months, without finning or filtration. This wine exploded from the glass with loads of blue fruit, violet, and spice, a full rich texture, and a generous finish.
“Better a little which is well done, than a great deal imperfectly.”
