Cotes du Crow’s is our unique blend of the two noble, predominant red varietals of France’s southern Rhone Valley: Grenache and Syrah. This year we again decided to use a small amount of Tempranillo - its spice and earth tones are a beautiful complement to Grenache and Syrah.

Sourced primarily from the Arroyo Seco and San Lucas appellations of Monterey County. Warmer daytime temperatures are mitigated by ocean breezes and cool nights - fostering acidity and balance.

In central and southern Monterey County the fog burns off early, allowing ample sunshine to warm temperatures to the mid to upper 80’s during the summer and fall. The rising warm air draws the cool winds from the Monterey Bay in the late afternoon. By night time, temperatures cool to the low 50’s.
 
This Rhone-style blend has a rich ruby red color, highlighted with purple edges. Rasberry compote and maraschino cherry aromas jump out of the glass. The wine is medium-bodied with soft tannins, offering a mouthful of black fruit and rose petal. Its weight and balance make it a perfect pairing with anything off the grill.
