“In the same ballpark, the 2012 Rising Tides checks in as a blend of 37% Grenache, 34% Syrah and 29% Mourvedre. Deeper and richer than the Sticks and Stones, it offers knockout cassis, blackberry, ground herbs, pepper and plenty of minerality in its sexy, full-bodied, seamless personality. There’s enough mid-palate depth and fine tannin here to keep this drinking great for another 7-8 years, if not more. ”

I had a fantastic tasting with owner/winemaker Matt Trevisan, and to my palate, this estate is at the top of their game. The wines have incredible purity across the board, and while they pack serious flavor and depth, they never seem heavy, over-the-top or cumbersome in the least. You can’t go wrong with any of these.
