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.Visit Our Store

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.
