The Story: I just found this hot-new winery that will dazzle you both in taste as well as cost!  The “Hundred Suns” winery is still very much under the “horizon” but not for long. Grant Coulter, a Califonia native traveled the world after receiving his enology degree.  He worked harvest with the best of the best in California, France & Australia, eventually settling in Oregon.  After a few stints as Assistant winemaker in a few wineries, he landed at Beaux Freres, where he soon became the Head Winemaker.  Grant is responsible for the amazing 2013, 14 & 15 vintages at Beaux Freres (all high 90’s, Top 2 wine of the year, etc.).   With his wife he created his own label “Hundred Suns”, a tiny Pinot Noir and Syrah venture.

The Wine: The ‘15 Sequitur Vineyard (Mike Etzel, Beaux Freres’ private vineyard) is a  50 case gem!   This single vineyard Sequitur bottling is a two barrels composite.  Half of the composition was Clone 943, 100% destemmed and fermented in a terracotta amphora. This produced a luscious wine with ripe blue fruit and sweet earthy tones mixed with just a hint of red terracotta texture.  This was blended with a  50% whole cluster fermented barrel.    The wine offers up a great nose of bright red fruit and berries – hints of cherry aromas are  supported by a hint of spice and a touch of sweet vanilla. Purity and finesse from start to finish.  This youngster is medium to medium full in body with silky grained sweet tannins
