About The Wine
The EABA ('ee-buh') 2018, or End All Be All, is just the second vintage of what Jim describes as "Our what it, why not, what are we waiting for Rhône blend, comprised of the very best lots in our cellar." A classic blend based around Syrah, this beauty leaps from the glass offering a heady bouquet of black and blue fruits, white pepper, and Herbs de Provence, with a palate described as "flawlessly balanced" by Dunnuck.
The fruit is a blend of 59% Syrah, from Bien Nacido & Harrison-Clarke Vineyards, paired with 23% Mourvedre, and 15% Grenache, from Alta Mesa & Larner Vineyards, and finished off with a splash of Viognier for good measure. The 2018 Andremily EABA was 60% whole cluster fermented and brought up in 50% new French oak.
Andremily Wines EABA 2018
"The 2018 Eaba is another wine from Jim that puts its foot firmly on the ripeness pedal and offers a blockbuster-like style of ripe black fruits, wood smoke, cured meats, and peppery goodness. Full-bodied and concentrated on the palate, it’s flawlessly balanced, has gorgeous tannins, and a great finish. Drink it over the coming 10-12 years or so. The 2018 is 59% Syrah, 23% Mourvedre, 15% Grenache, and the rest Viognier, aged 22 months in 50% new French oak."
