Press
Parvata, meaning ‘Mountain’ in Sanskrit, is a GSM blend from Red Mountain AVA that contains 57% Mourvèdre, 25% Syrah and 18% Grenache. The wine sees 25% new French oak and 100% native yeast fermentation. An orchestra of blueberry, blackberry, lilac and Asian spice fill the nose. As the wine hits your palate, you are encompassed by a perfectly balanced mélange of huckleberry, dried thyme, beet root and baking chocolate that melds perfectly with the textured tannins followed by a length that goes on for several minutes.

Composed of 57% Mourvèdre, 25% Syrah and 18% Grenache, the 2018 Parvata offers up dusty fruit aromas of black cherry, blackberries and red plum skin along with a fine, powdery minerality and hints of baking spices and purple flowers that waft from the glass. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is expressive on the palate with a delicious frame of ripe fruit, overlaid with mineral tension and a firm tannic grip that is food-friendly. The wine ends with a long, drawn-out to finish that highlights the terroir. This fermented in concrete and stainless steel vessels before resting in larger French oak barrels, 25% new. Only 350 cases were produced.
