About the Wine

 

Comprised of 100% Estate fruit, Perfectionist is a concrete co-fermentation of whole cluster Syrah and Grenache aged for 18 months in concrete tanks. The power, tannin, and ripe focus of this wine is a direct expression of the fruit, the vines, and a ripe 2014 growing season.

 

Blackberry, vanilla bean, and ripe blueberries pull across a lengthy finish. It’s always the last release each vintage following 12 months in the bottle, lending the wine yet another layer of complexity.

  • “Deep ruby. A highly complex, spice-laced bouquet evokes black and blue fruit preserves, incense and Moroccan spices, and a smoky mineral quality adds lift. Stains the palate with concentrated, sharply delineated boysenberry and cassis liqueur flavors that are energized by a spine of juicy acidity. Definitely rich, but shows outstanding energy and clarity as well. Finishes sweet, velvety and extremely long, leaving notes of candied flowers and spicecake behind."

    95 points, Josh Reynolds (Vinous, Nov. 2017)

     

    “The 2014 Perfectionist from Trevisan is a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre that saw 100% stems and aging all on concrete. It sports a light ruby color as well as complex notes of raspberries, damp earth, peppery herbs and violets. Full-bodied, silky and seamless on the palate, it has a great texture that just glides across the palate, as well as light tannin and a clean finish. It's already hard to resist but will keep for a decade."

    94 points, Jeb Dunnuck (Aug. 2017)
