Aaron and Cara Mockrish lost all of their Syrah and Merlot, and portions of other red blocks at Renaissance from frost. Thankfully, friends stepped in to help source fruit from other regions to supplement their production. 'Waypoint' is a Merlot based wine made from a small organically farmed backyard vineyard in Sonoma. A small amount of Renaissance Vineyard Grenache (15%) rounds out the blend. Whole clusters were foot-stomped and fermented in stainless steel before pressing to a mix of Amphora and used oak barrels. Waypoint is fresh and aromatic with tons of lift, a beautiful wine made out of challenging circumstances.
