65% Wallula Vineyard Mourvèdre, 25% Upland Vineyard Grenache, 10% Rotie Rocks Syrah
Little g and Dre are fantastic expressions of single vineyard wines, whereas, Homage puts the blends together to showcase the power of this trilogy. Mourvèdre always inspired Jacque Perrin of Chateau Beaucastel and he is quoted as saying at the end of the day he loved growing Grenache and drinking Mourvèdre. After his death, the family would focus the best Mourvèdre heavy blends with a touch of Grenache and Syrah from the Chateau and call it Hommage de Jacque Perrin. This is the blend we are trying to emulate here in Washington and Oregon–our best Mourvèdre with a touch of Grenache and Syrah that our Cellar has to offer.
