The Story:  Screenwriter Jeff Strauss and his wife Mindy Schultheis purchased the former Kitty Hawk vineyard in 2003.  This property sits at 900-1100 feet elevation at Mt. Veeder.  They completely replanted the vineyard and hired winemaker extraordinaire Charles Thomas (Lokoya, Cardinale, Rudd, Quintessa, etc.) to oversee the winemaking from this great estate.

 

The Wine:  The Gathering is a blend of  61% Syrah, 32% Grenache, 4% Counoise, 3% Mourvedre , all estate grown at their Mt. Veeder property.  The wine evolves and Grenache moves toward center-stage with Syrah,  This is a powerful, yet amazingly well-balanced wine.  This bold youngster offers up voluptuous, dark red and black fruit that is loaded with pure and intense flavors of chocolate, boysenberry, Bing cherry and, a hint of savory notes and a whiff of  licorice on the long finish. Only 5 barrels produced!
