Todd Alexander, Winemaker, Force Majeure
Force Majeure, 2013, Force Majeure Vineyard, Syrah, Red Mountain
Deep inky purple color. Aromas of blackberry and black pepper, leather and fresh violets. Big bold texture with lots of minerality. Flavors of blackberry pie, plum, cocoa, and cardamom. Luscious texture balance beautifully by bright acidity
Force Majeure, 2013, Force Majeure Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Mountain
Nose of cassis, fresh flowers and black fruit with good minerality. Dusty tannins that should settle with age, but still a sexy velvety texture. Delicious, well integrated flavors of dark red to black berries, cola, cocoa, leather. Long finish.
