Mad As Adam

There's nothing more fun than trying to think up palindromes after a few glasses of wine. Go on. Try it.

"Hey guys, how's it going? Whatcha got there, Ted?"

"A dog! A panic in a pagoda!"

"That's weird, cuz it really looks like a glass of wine."

Ugh. Ignore him. Ever since he started drinking that Rock Wall Company Tannat, he's been speaking in nothing but palindromes.

"Amen, icy cinema."

See? He's really gotten fixated on the whole thing.

"You'd think if he was going to get fixated on anything about this wine, it would be the fresh cappuccino and dark chocolate."

"Cigar? Toss it in a can. It is so tragic."

"I … I didn't say anything about a cig … oh I see. That's another palindrome."

Watch this. It's pretty funny. Hey Ted … don't you just love the aromas of rich blackberry, ripe blueberry and rose hips?

"Do geese see God?"

Uh huh.

"Do nine men interpret? Nine men. I nod."

I think that means "yes."

"OK then. I've seen enough. I'm out of here. Have fun with that."

Flee to me, remote elf!

Tannat is a red wine grape historically grown in South West France in the Madiran AOC and is now one of the most prominent grapes in Uruguay, where it is considered the “national grape.” This Tannat is a blend from two different vineyards in two separate climates. The first is a warm weather Tannat coming from Gene Gleaser’s Vineyard in Solano County and the other is cool weather Tannat coming from Russian River.

The two lots came in separately, so Rock Wall crushed, fermented and rested them independently of one another so they could develop independent flavor profiles. The Russian River Tannat was inoculated with RP15, while the Solano County was inoculated with D80. Rock Wall crushed, fermented and aged the lots independently of one another so they could develop their own personalities. The Gleaser Tannat was fermented in tank with pumpovers, and the Russian River Tannat was done in macrobins with punchdowns. We blended them together on April 6, 2010 and the Palindrome was born.
