Hawk Wakawaka Wine Reviews: 26 Hours in El Dorado

“Tasting through the Skinner Rhone reds collection there is a beautiful consistency of quality, with vintage variation. The winemaking utilizes natural yeast with no additives, with a focus on picking to retain acidity. Pittenger is especially excited about the Grenache they are producing from the region.

I fell in love with the Mourvedre, especially the 2010 Estate.

One of the nice surprises was the Skinner 2010 Petite Sirah. This wine carries the burly-shoulder heft of Petite Sirah with gracefulness. It’s a grape that is easily, and often over done, but Skinner’s version marries a delicate touch with the stoutness of the grape. I like it.”
