About This Wine
Although Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne are more famous, there’s another French wine region worth knowing.
It’s the Rhone Valley, and its vintners produce delicious, complex cuvees made primarily from two varieties: Grenache and Syrah. In California, Indian Creek crafts a Rhone-style red wine from grapes grown in the Paso Robles viticultural area. More and more, the Paso Robles region is becoming known as one of California’s most diverse wine-growing areas.
Indian Creek’s 2015 “Three Rivers” cuvee is medium in body like a fine Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and also beautifully textured like an exquisite Cote Rotie. It seamlessly melds aromas and flavors from the grapes, vineyards and oak barrels to create a finished wine that’s uniquely Paso Robles but reminiscent of the Rhone.
We like to think of it as the best of two worlds, not to mention the best of two complementary varieties — a decadent taste of the Rhone from California.
