Quick Overview


Basque Blend 2014
The Basque Blend was conceived after winemaker, Deborah Elissagaray, travelled with her family back to the Pyrenees to the village where her father was born. This vintage offers watermelon and herbes de Provence in the nose. As in previous vintages, toasted tea and strawberry flavors are supported by a well balanced and pleasantly structured palate.


This wine is dark and intriguing: juicy blueberry, blackberry, and red plum combine with a sturdy backbone filled with woodsy aromas and a bit of tar. Dried rose and gravel hints round out this full-bodied profile. This wine takes you right to the sunny southwest of France!



 

Delicious with aged hard cheeses, lamb stew and pintxos of course!

    Basque Blend 2014

    The Basque Blend was conceived after winemaker, Deborah Elissagaray, travelled with her family back to the Pyrenees to the village where her father was born. This vintage offers watermelon and herbes de Provence in the nose. As in previous vintages, toasted tea and strawberry flavors are supported by a well balanced and pleasantly structured palate.

     Made in collaboration with husband and master blender, Greg Stokes, D’Elissagaray is a unique approach in emulating the house blends of the Basque country. Though there are vintage variations, the Basque Blend is always made with varietals native to the South of France, created in California and reflective of the tradition in the Pyrenees.

    Deborah grew up spending her summers visiting family in the Pyrénées Mountain town of Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France where she gained an appreciation for her Basque heritage. The region inspired work on a Basque blend that makes predominant use of the Tannat grape, known for its powerful tannin and dark pigmentation. The couple fell in love with the varietal and have been making wines with it every year since.

    Winemaker Deborah Elissagaray and her husband, Greg Stokes, of Ursa Vineyards conceived of this gem after traveling back to her family’s roots in the French Pyrenees. This wine is dark and intriguing: juicy blueberry, blackberry, and red plum combine with a sturdy backbone filled with woodsy aromas and a bit of tar. Dried rose and gravel hints round out this full-bodied profile. This wine takes you right to the sunny southwest of France!
