A wine is often greater than the sum of its parts, and Dissident is our end to this means. We set out to create a Rhone-inspired GSM blend that balances its components while showcasing its finest individual qualities. Dissident combines the body and structure of Syrah, the refined brightness and spice of Grenache, and the leather-earthiness of Mourvèdre. The result is this debut offering culled specifically from our best lots. The wine was barrel aged for seven months then blended and racked back into neutral oak for an additional eleven months before release.
