It is Etienne’s love of crafting blends that inspired this Rhône-style blend of 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 5% Mourvèdre, named ‘246’ to honor Highway 246 that runs the course of the Santa Ynez Valley. He selected these three different grape varietals to create a well-balanced wine with an aromatic bouquet and clean fruit characteristics on the palate. The Cordon 2016 ‘Cuvée Rouge 246’ is Etienne’s artisanal version of the popular ‘GSM’ blend, made with traditional, age-old winemaking methods and a touch of modern technology.
