LATTA Wines

The very first blend that Latta Wines has offered is composed of 58% Grenache, 23% Syrah and 19% Mourvedre in homage to the great Rhone wines that inspire us. This garnet wine has the mineral, savory and bright cherry aromatics of Grenache, the deep meaty bramble of Syrah and the earthy wildness of Mourvedre.

Reviews

  • "93 points. Editors' Choice. A new offering from this winery, this wine is a blend of 58% Grenache, 23% Syrah and 19% Mourvèdre hailing from Upland and Freewater Rocks vineyards. It brings mesmerizingly pure aromas of kirsch, white pepper, boysenberry, black plum and raspberry, along with a hint of barrel spice. The flavors show depth and texture, with coffee notes lingering on the finish. It's a stunner, especially at this price." (Wine Enthusiast)
  • "92 points. The 2013 Latta Wines 'Latta Latta' GSM blend is another fantastic wine made by Andrew Latta. This wine opens with aromatics of smoke, red cherry, red raspberry and lavender. There are rich flavors of red cherries, cranberries, pomegranate, roasted dates and suggestions of baking spices. This has wonderful texture and minerality, as well as a complex flavor profile, which remains persistent through the finish. (Best 2017-2025)." (International Wine Report)
