Law is on a windy road hillside. 100% French oak, used for four or five years. 40% new and 60% neutral. First vintage in 2010. Don and Susie Law. 350 acres and only 90 of it “under vine” or planted.
Industrial look to the building and tasting room, in a rugged area, but it all blended nicely.
Branding: white labels are blends and the black labels are single varietals. The Black labels are closed to only the current wine club and the white label is potentially going to close as well simply because there isn’t enough allocation left. Law is a direct customer sales environment 100% except for a small allocation that goes to high end restaurants and a Denver wine store because that’s where the Law’s orignated.
WINES Sold out of Sohpie, their only white Rhone blend wine. It sells out fast.
1) lovely Rose. Nice light cherry, young. A GSM base and Provence style. Very easy sipping.
2). Sagacious . Classic Rhone blend. Heavier on the Movedra. Very berry bright red, raspberry. + Light cherry. medium light, a little bit of earthy flavors. Law tries not to let the oak to overpower so 40% new oak and the rest is neutral. Definitely is tannin and acid forward with the cherry being very bright yet lovely, elegant flavors.
3). Audacious. Blend Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignon and Syrah. Nice tannin- forward fruit. Cherry and raspberry again, little cranberry pomegranate. Modeled after Priorat, Spain. Powerful wine.
4). Aspire. 100% Grenache, modeled after a Cote Rotie. Jammy stewed cranberry with big fruit flavors all merging together. Tannin forefront for food pairing. Pleasant lingering aftertaste of fruit, dark jammy flavors. Bought this one.
5).. Beguiling. Inverse of aspire. Grenache and Syrah. Medium body. Big tannin, also red fruit forward. Nice wine. A quaffer.
Very pretty winery. Very private. Very elegant high-end, wine-club only. Didn’t need any wine right now, so didn’t join, for now.
