Tasting Notes

Family owned and operated, George and Linda Unti began farming the vineyard in 1990 and, with Mick Unti, founded the winery in 1997. Describing themselves as “obsessive wine fanatics,” their belief is that the best grapes come from vineyards most naturally suited to their surrounding environment. Therefore, their Dry Creek vineyards are planted to Mediterranean varietals such as Barbera, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Syrah and Zinfandel alongside several others best suited to their vineyard’s climate.

    The 2012 Cuvee Foudre stole the show for me. This wine is only made during the best Grenache and Mourvedre vintages and the 2012 is the first bottling under the Cuvee Foudre label since 2005! Consisting of the best lots of each varietal, the blend is 40% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, and 30% Syrah. Beautiful aromatics of freshly ground pepper, raspberry and blackberry fruits, licorice and dried herbs abound. The palate is juicy and savory, with great mineral, firm tannins and incredible balance. Give it a couple years to really start showing off!
