The Story: Owner and Winemaker Curt Schalchlin has been producing high-quality Rhone blends at a very respectable price level for years. Curt worked for some of the best winemakers in industry and went solo about over a decade ago, and the rest is history. Today Sans Liege has a worldwide fan base, even as far as Japan, Belgium and South America. The 2014 “Offering” is by far the best ever!

The Wine: The 2014 Offering (a blend of 47% Grenache, 33% Syrah, 19% Mourvedre, 1% Viognier) is a wine that captures the imagination and challenges expectations, it displays a beautiful purity and depth that is reminiscent of having a summer picnic in an ancient church. Resinous scents of black cherry cola, frankincense, fresh-peeled Clementine orange and vanilla extract lead to a well-structured and balanced palate of curried mix-berry cobbler, turmeric, dark chocolate cocoa nibs and black pepper with rocky, persistent tannins.

Winemaker Notes: “Running through the kitchen you eye the blueberry pie, steam still rising, on the window sill. Your mom sees the mischievous look in your eye and shoos you away with her dish towel. The pie’s scent mixes with the aromas of rainbow peppercorn, tapenade and fresh picked strawberries which sit in a bowl on the table. With a screech the screen door slams and you pick up your Schwinn with the new tires and take off. Flying around the corner you get a whiff of the ocean and the seaweed drying on the sand only a few blocks away. You reach the hideout; your friends have already started the game - cards in hand and a pile of beef jerky & tootsie rolls on the table.”
