The annual 'autonomous' blend for each vintage, this 2011 cuvee is crafted to be a wine that stands alone amongst the other wines from AUTØNØM. It is always the most hedonistic and it will never be common as each vintage shapes it uniquely. This vintage is a blend of 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre which come from vineyards throughout San Luis Obipso and Santa Barbara Counties. This cuvee pays homage to the sometime forgotten, every day drinking wines from the Southern Rhone Valley.
