Purchased by Elaine and Manfred in 2010, The Third Twin is a medium-warm site. The soil is almost pure sand, and it is mainly planted to Syrah, Petite Sirah and Mourvedre, with smaller plantings of Graciano. The 2018 Nuestra Senora Del Tercer Gemolo is a blend of 63% Petite Sirah, 22.1% Mourvèdre, 11.5% Graciano and 3.4% Viognier, employing 28% whole clusters. This wine was bottled on May 20, 2021, after spending 32 months in French oak, 42% new. Deep purple-black colored, the glass needed a fair bit of swirling to unlock this wine’s wonderfully pure scents of baked black plums, blackberry pie and boysenberries, leading to an undercurrent of fruitcake, Indian spices, unsmoked cigars and cracked black pepper. The full-bodied palate is a powerhouse of fruit, bursting with black berry preserves and exotic spice layers, framed with a solid line of firm, ripe tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing with incredible persistence and purity.
