Wine Profile

Vineyard Notes Cass and Madison Vineyards
Winemaker Notes Each wine in this blend is quite good by itself. They were fermented with different yeasts to draw out the flavors we were looking for. Spicy: Mourvedre. Fruity: Grenache. Earthy: Syrah. Each wine was placed in 25% new French Oak to soften the edges. Thunder brings the flavors of these three wines together to give you more complexity on the palate. Trials were done to find the best combination of flavors. The result was 40% Grenache, 28% Mourvedre, and 25% Madison Syrah for fruitiness, 7% Penman Syrah for pepper.
Food Pairing Notes Beef, Poultry or Fish smoked or grilled; Paella, Tuscan and French Provenşal cuisine.
