L’Autre means “the other one”. This is now our top Rhône varietal blend. It has replaced Noir, a wine that was based on an old Placer County Grenache site that met its demise in 2002. The Grenache for L’Autre is better clonal material grown in what we consider to be a better location. The Duarte-Georgetown Vineyard is located at 2,500 feet near the town of the same name. Its Boomer series red, decomposed granite soils are what Grenache likes to grow in and the budwood is from Chateau Rayas, Beaucastel, and Remelluri in Rioja. The Mourvèdre is from one of our Fiddletown sites. The Syrah is from the Monarch Mine Vineyard, on a South-facing ridge to the North of the Georgetown Divide. This 2010 is very elegant, complex, and lively. Grenache’s savory plum and black cherry flavors, coupled with Mourvèdre’s smoky gaminess, and Syrah’s powerful punch and richness. This is a dead ringer for a top Southern Rhône, say a Châteauneuf-du-Pape or Gigondas.
