Core Hard 2004
This is an interesting blend showing Rhone and Bordeaux varietals together. Nice fruit with cherries and spice and a nice long finish. his is very small production wine - 285 cases - from a high altitude vineyard in Santa Barbara county - showing how warm areas can make very nice wines when the right varietals are planted and when geologic formations affect the weather.
CORE started in 2001 with 10 barrels. CORE focuses on red and white Rhones. All wines are blends featuring Grenache and Mourvedre from our high elevation Alta Mesa Vineyard. The whites feature Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Marsanne. We have 3 other labels which we produce. Kuyam features Bordeaux blends, C3 Tempranillo and Turchi Bordeaux varietal wines.
