53% Mourvèdre, 35% Grenache, 12% Syrah


Wine reviewer, Jeb Dunnuck Says..."Leading off the reds, the 2021 Azimuth checks in as 53% Mourvèdre, 35% Grenache, and the rest Syrah. It's loaded with spicy red and black fruits as well as notions of dried herbs, loamy earth, leather, and cured meats. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and concentrated, it nevertheless stays light on its feet, is beautifully balanced, and has a great finish." 94 - 96 points

Wine critic Owen Bargreen says, "The 2021 ‘Azimuth’ combines 53% Mourvèdre with
35% Grenache and the remainder Syrah. Stored for 20 months in mostly used oak
barrels, this offers beautiful aromatic range with smoked meats, black olive tapenade,
salted black fruits and shades of tar. The palate is soft and refined with a silky texture.
Big and bold with beautiful freshness and salty character, this is a totally stunning new
wine by winemaker Carl Bowker. 400 cases made. Drink 2024-2040 -96".

Wine critic Erin Brooks says, "The 2021 Azimuth is a blend of 53% Mourvèdre, 35% Grenache and 12% Syrah matured for 20 months in 30% new French oak. It takes some air to open from tar and earth to reveal blackberries, blueberries, lavender, tea leaves and conifer-like undertones. The medium-bodied palate features restrained, perfumed fruit supported by chalky tannins and refreshing acidity, and it has a long, nuanced finish. 400 cases were produced, and it will be released in the spring of 2024." -94

The 2021 Azimuth finds harmony with the three varieties in the blend while allowing attributes from each to shine through. Light gaminess, pencil shavings, and dried herbs give way to very focused and delicate red fruit, while a whisp of smoked cedar dances across the glass. Starting with more juicy red fruit upon entry, the palate is medium-bodied with round, age-worthy, and persistent tannin. Plum and fig preserves, along with grilled meats and cherry cola fill out the concentrated, lengthy finish.
