2010 La Baleine
The 2010 La Baleine is a blend of 68% Hawks View Vineyard Pinot Noir, 18% Garys' Vineyard Syrah, and 14% Double Canyon Vineyard Merlot. The Pinot Noir gives the wine aromatic complexity and helps contain the Syrah’s dark and explosive personality. The Merlot’s addition in this wine takes it from being elegant and adds size and intensity. The wine was aged in 33% new oak, and 67% once filled barrels which add spice and complexity to this wine.
