CRAFTED

The 2014 Rapsodie II is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre produced from three ultra- premium vineyards, located in Santa Barbara County, including Sunstone’s 26-year old estate vineyard and a vineyard planted by Sunstone in the late 1990’s. Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were separately sorted, lightly crushed, and de-stemmed before being pumped into an open top fermentation tank. After cold soaking, the grapes were inoculated and allowed to ferment for 12 days on the skins using the D254 yeast strain to extract maximum color and flavor. Following fermentation, the wines were transferred to French oak barrels, for a secondary fermentation and aging. After barrel aging for 12-months, the separate lots were blended to taste, filtered and bottled to 327 cases 12/750mL and 120 magnums in November 2016.

I love that this version of the rapsodie is Syrah driven, it gives it that big jammy flavor with a bit of a coffee aftertaste. The little bit of Mourvèdre also provides just the right balance of earthy/spicy.
