Thoughtfully located at over 2,800 feet in elevation on top of a knoll, our Estate Pinot Noir is cooled in late summer afternoon by shade from a high ridge in the Eagle foothills. Careful tending of this young block produced exceptional grapes in its inaugural harvest. The first harvest was joyfully met, albeit small. 20 cases
2019 was a standout year in the Eagle Foothills and our 2019 GSM (64% Grenache / 31% Mourvèdre / 5% Syrah) is no exception to the rule. The rare vine cuttings came from the storied CdP estate, Château de Beaucastel, in France and are thriving in our sandy/loamy soil.
This very special wine marries boisterous and fruity Grenache with brooding and peppery Mourvèdre and Syrah.
We are understandably proud of our Estate Wines, wines grown and created by 3 Horse Ranch Vineyards here in the Eagle Foothills AVA.
