Mélange Rouge 

Rhône Blend


Our blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah is a respectful nod to the celebrated bottlings of Château de Beaucastel. The bright, rich fruit and acidity of Grenache took center stage in 2019. As in the Southern Rhône Valley, Mourvèdre is also Grenache’s natural counterpoint at Moon Mountain Vineyard. Within Châteauneuf-du-Pape, where blending is prevalent, Mourvèdre is highly prized, its savory and dense character complemented by alluring aromatics. A finishing touch of Syrah binds them together. The resulting blend and offers an intriguing Sonoma interpretation of these ancient viticultural companions.
