‘High on the Hog’ Red 2017 – 750ml
This Rhone-Style Red made by McPrice “Mac” Myers is comprised of 40% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 22% Mourvedre, 6% Petite Sirah and 2% Viognier from Central Coast and is delicious. Aged for 20 months, Mac fermented the wine in concrete, stainless steel and small open-top fermenters with 20% whole clusters. Aromas of raspberry jam, mocha, cedar, plum and cocoa fill the glass with ripe cherries and fine grain tannins on the palate. With the right connections, Mac can source from the famed Denner Vineyard, Larner Vineyard and Les Galets Vineyard to produce this great-drinking Red. Mac became a complete food and wine geek in his early twenties. This led him to frequent sojourns to the Central Coast, where he became a quick study of the burgeoning wine scene. Mac’s first vintage was 2002. His enthusiasm for the local vineyards in Paso Robles and Santa Barbara County was matched only by the lure of the Rhone Valley. Mac’s own wines received overnight praise from the wine press-at-large. With a keen eye on the future of California vineyards and a respectful nod to the Old World, Mac continues to impress as one of the most progressive and even-handed winemakers on the Central Coast.
