AMORE (GSM) 2018
AMORE (GSM) 2018

AMORE from the Latin phrase "Amore et melle et felle es fecundissimus" which means "love is rich with honey and venom."

What is more essential to life than love?  First loves, true loves, first heartbreak, and soulmates.  Where would we be without them?  I hope you love this wine and take a minute to reflect on a love in your life.

AMORE is a traditional Rhone style GSM (62% Syrah, 23% Mourvedre, and 15% Grenache) blend sourced from the Elephant Mountain and Sugarloaf Vineyards within Washington's Rattlesnake Hills AVA as well as the Willow Run vineyard in Washington's Columbia Valley.

 

AMORE pairs well with robust flavors such as fattier cuts of beef and steaks like ribeye.  Also goes well with grilled meats and BBQ, mushrooms, roasted chicken, or charcuterie.  Also nicely compliments meals that have spices and herbs such as sage, rosemary, and red pepper.

Wine Enthusiast - Editor's Choice - 92 points (February/March 2021 Double Issue) - This inaugural release from the winery is a blend of 62% Syrah, 23% Mourvedre, and 15% Grenache.  Aromas of plums, cherry, and dried herb lead to a sumptuous, layered palate. - Sean P. Sullivan

Jeb Dunnuck - 93 points - Based on 62% Syrah, 23% Mourvedre, adn 15% Grenache, the 2018 AMORE comes from a handful of sites in the Columbia Valley and was aged 16 months in neutral oak.  Lots of gamey red and black fruits, peppery herb, and violet notes define the nose, and it's medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, and lengthy.  I love its character, and it shows more game, smoke, tapenade, and meadiness with time in the glass.  Just a beautiful, character-filled wine.  it's going to keep for a solid decade in cold cellars.
