LOOMIS EMBER Rhone Blend, Napa Valley

Complimentary Ground Shipping on 3 or more bottles* USE CODE VINO

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • 100% Napa Valley fruit, classic Rhone blend
  • 45% Syrah, 30% Mouvedre, 20% Grenache Noir, 5% Counoise
  • 2000 foot hillside vineyard, single estate

WINEMAKER: Michael Andrews (Shadybrook Estate, Goosecross, White Cottage Ranch)

WHAT WE TASTED: Aromas and flavors of ripe fruits such as red cherry, plum and blackberry blend perfectly with spice and a supple mouth feel. Slight gamey notes, nuances of smoked spice and the idea of wild flowers will keep you coming back sip after sip. Expect great acidity and a long finish from this sagacious wine.

AVA DESIGNATED: Napa Valley

PERSONALITY:  When you reach the sky, turn left. A rare, Rhône varietal blend from a heady elevation. On a single mountain estate, Jeff Loomis set out to succeed where few have dared to dream. Everyone told him Rhone varietals would not succeed in Napa. First harvest was 2007 and he's proven naysayers wrong. This wine is a consistent winner and favorite in San Francisco Bay Area. Varietals: Syrah (6 clones), Grenache Noir (3 clones), Mourvedre, Counoise, Grenache Blanc, Viognier. 

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Pasta Puttanesca : black olives, anchovy, onion, tomato, parsley
  • Grilled Italian sausage, onions, and peppers with mascarpone polenta
  • Julia Childs’ Coq au vin

TECHNICAL:

  • 5 day cold soak, 9 day primary fermentation
  • Primary and Malo completed  in barrel
  • Aged 18 months in French oak
