It's always such a distinct wine in our line up. I'd say it is more open for business in its youth, with a unique profile that always veers toward the Bay Leaf and watermelon side of the spectrum, super soft tannins and a long red fruit finish. I need to stop talking about this wine because I'm getting sad about the end of the line. The Hoages are the nicest people ever to work with. Buy their wines if you don't already. I have nothing but respect for them

Based on 52% Grenache and 48% Syrah, the 2018 Terry Hoage Vineyard was brought up in a mix of French oak and concrete tanks. The last release from this vineyard for a while, as the vines were replanted, it's a ripe, sexy wine that has notable purity in its ripe black fruits, spice box, licorice, and chocolate aromas and flavors. Rich, full-bodied, rounded, and beautifully textured, with soft tannins, it's already drinking nicely but will evolve beautifully for a decade.

The 2018 Terry Hoage Vineyard is the last version of this wine-the vineyard was ripped out due to red blotch. It's a blend of 52% Grenache and 48% Syrah, made with about 30% whole cluster and aged in 50% new puncheons and 50% concrete amphora. It has an opaque ruby-purple color and bursts with aromas of mint, blueberry and blackberry jam, garrigue and red fruit touches. Full-bodied, it offers wonderful juiciness and bright, spicy tricolored fruits with a firm, grainy frame and long finish.
