We like to call it our “Lemonade Moment” (if that reference is lost on you, ask a friend).
At our Fall Release party, we decided to debut a brand new wine way ahead of schedule. Enter the 2015 Locus Sud, a young, upstart blend of 7 Mile Grenache and (84%) and Keller Syrah (16%). Ten months in barrels and only three months in bottle, it’s tasting beautifully now – tart, expressive, and commanding attention. Kind of like a millennial. It’s our version of a Southern Rhône blend, hence the name Sud, which means South in French.
Second best part, or maybe the better part, is that, for a very limited time, the Sud is available for a discount on the Locus online portal for $19/bottle (plus case discount as applicable) until January 2017.
As part of the Washington state wine month, all Locus wines are going to be on display at Bottlehouse on Thursday, August 20th, along with the winemaker Rich Burton. Rich will also debut the first public tasting for the upcoming Keller Vineyard Syrah.
