Cuvée Moriah Grenache 2014 – $50

One whiff and you’ll be hooked on the 2014 Cuvee Moriah. This California Rhône-style red wine hails from the Dry Stack Vineyard. Grenache is the great contributor to this incredibly aromatic wine. We cannot say enough great things about this gem of a site that we have loved for 10 years. Unlike most California Grenache, this fruit is able to retain idyllic freshness that supports a very dense mid-palate, making Cuvee Moriah a dynamic and irresistible wine.

The next evolution in our Cuvée Moriah reintroduces Mourvèdre, taking the already exotic 2014 vintage and adding wild herbs and cured meats—delicious! The 2014 bottling is a great match between the Dry Stack Vineyard Grenache’s delicate fruit flavors of pomegranate and rhubarb and the Kopf Vineyard Mourvèdre’s structuring mouth-feel and savory notes of caraway seed and cardamom spices, with additional hints of red currants and fresh violets throughout.

A magical pairing with Moroccan cuisine such as tajine.
