THE FAMILY TREE - G.S.M. - 2014

248.00

Welcome to the Family Tree.

This wine is the unification of our Vineyards, our Style, and our Work.
It's a one time blast from the hip. We make it, we make it one time only. 
We drop the Mic.

This wine is a culmination of our entire farming operation. 

It is who we are in a bottle, like a family photo.
Each year it changes just a bit, but over time, you see the transformation.


In this wine, we unify both the Windmill Ranch Vineyard and the El Camino Real Vineyard.  It comprises 3 barrels of each of our Grenache Vineyards, Both El Camino Real and Windmill Ranch. It also holds 3 barrels of our El Camino Real Mourvedre. 
Finally, we have 2 barrels of the Syrah we grow on our Windmill Ranch Vineyard. 

Think of it like a family, a modern family, comprised of the merger of 2
distinctly different vineyards that are brought together to form something that would never exist on its own. A modern-day Brady Bunch in a bottle. 

2 distinct Terroir in a single bottle. 

Terroir (French pronunciation:  from terre, "land") is the set of all environmental factors that affect a crop's habitat, including unique environment contexts, farming practices, and a crop's specific growth location. Collectively, these contextual characteristics are said to have a character; terroir also refers to this character. The Terroir system presumes that the land from which the grapes are grown imparts a unique quality that is specific to that growing site. The extent of terroir's significance is debated in the wine industry.
