2017 Black Sheep Finds Cafe Society Red Blend

$25

This wine is a blend of 43% Mourvèdre, 34% Grenache, & 23% Syrah from Santa Barbara County.

It has such an attractive & irresistible perfumed nose of raspberry, red cherry, blackberry, and bramble. On the palate you get a slight earthiness, gentle grainy tannins, a light peppery spice, and fresh acidity. This is a wine easy enough to drink on its own and complex enough to pair with red meat.

Red Blends Wines

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.

Central Coast, California

When we speak of Central Coast, CA were including numerous diverse regions from Santa Cruz down through Santa Barbara counties. This encompasses smaller areas such as Santa Cruz Mountains AVA, Monterey AVA, Paso Robles AVA, Santa Maria Valley AVA, Santa Ynez Valley AVA, and Sta. Rita Hills AVA. The Central Coast is responsible for many great value wines from a multitude of grape varietals depending on the climate within the specific designated areas. From the coastal AVA’s with influence from the fog and cooling effects, you will find Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The inland AVA’s are much warmer, like Paso Robles, so look here for outstanding Syrah, Grenache, Zinfandel, or Rhône-style blends.

Peter Hunken got his start in winemaking at Stolpman Vineyards in 2001. He was the assistant winemaker there for six years & one of the founding members of Piedrasassi and Holus Bolus Wines with Sashi Moorman. Peter’s wife and partner at Black Sheep Finds is Amy Christine, a sommelier, sales rep for Kermit Lynch Imports, and a Master of Wine. In other words, this is a savvy vino duo.
