I love the thrill of discovery, the joy of learning
something, and the anticipation of sharing a new wine with our fans. The 2014
Petite Sirah is such a thrilling wine for the above reasons and more. The vines
grow on the windy hills of the Rock Hollow estate, planted in the hills behind
Alamo Pintado Rd, in the Los Olivos District AVA. Over the last few years, more
Petite was grafted on top of the aging Cab Franc vines. But, for now, the
producing land only adds up to 1.1 acres of grapes, yielding precious little
wine. We are crazy proud of this inaugural release. The wine is truly
impossibly dark, the color of a moonless night. Despite the darkness, the wine
is also very well balanced and nuanced. Additionally, the wine has benefited
from the extra year in bottle prior to release. Though the wine might taste
ready to enjoy tonight, it will continue to benefit from several more years in
200 cases bottled $36/btl Fan Club $28.8/btl
This is E11even Wines:
I am so proud to announce the re-launch of E11even
Wines. This is a very personal project
for me. I feel like these wines have
been works-in-progress for a decade or more, only finally jumping from my
imagination and into the bottle just this year.
These new releases rank amongst the smallest production wines that I
have ever released. They are all Estate
Grown and crafted with the utmost care and precision. They truly represent the best that we can do
here, on the Curtis Estate, in the heart of Los Olivos. No expense was spared in the farming or the
crafting of these stunning wines. They
are rich and decadent, yet remarkably balanced, pure, and varietally correct. They speak softly of their variety and their
origins. They shout, “Drink Me!” These wines exemplify the Natural, Locavore
and Farm-To-Bottle movements. They are
grown in Los Olivos, Hand-Crafted in Los Olivos, and sold in Los Olivos by a
family that has been here for over 25 years.
We have decided to dedicate our newly remodeled Downtown Los
Olivos tasting room exclusively to these wines.
Andrew Murray Vineyards Club Members are offered complimentary tastings
in DTLO as a member perk. I urge you to
give them a try, before they are all gone.
While you are there, you can browse our updated collection of books and
bar accessories, including some of my favorite shakers, shrubs, mixes, and
bitters, while listening to vintage vinyl tunes. We look forward to seeing you soon!
