94 pts WS - new release
Fantastic new discovery! The latest offering from Sans Liege's Curt Schalchlin, the "Offering" is a blend of 47% Grenache, 33% Syrah, 19% Mourvedre and 1% Viognier. Darkly stylish label art, darkly stylish Grenache blend in the bottle. Highly recommended.
previous vintage 94 Points Wine Spectator: "Distinctive, refined and well-built, offering expressive black cherry, cigar box, green olive and cured meat accents that build richness on the long finish. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Viognier. Drink now through 2026."
90 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the reds, the 2017 The Offering checks in as a blend of 45% Grenache, 33% Syrah, 21% Mourvèdre, and 1% Viognier aged 17 months in 27% new oak. Its ruby/plum color gives way to a great nose of blackberries, ground pepper, herbes de Provence, and licorice. Medium-bodied, with plenty of fruit and good balance, it’s California's answer to an outstanding Côtes du Rhône."
