This wine honors a Major Milestone and perhaps is a nod to how time flies. It really has been ten crazy years since we purchased what is now Brecon Estate. Along the way we tried to take a path less traveled, picking up a somewhat colorful inner circle and rather unconventional influences. This special wine aims to reflect all this and improve on our ever popular “42” Rhone Blend, “the answer to life, the universe and everything.” A little more color, structure and silkiness, perhaps thanks to the addition of some tiny-berried Petite Sirah baby vines. Best saved for a special occasion or large family gathering.

Production notes

Our blending process was, yet again, a little like a jolly nice game of cricket! In other words, nobody outside the British Brecon empire has the foggiest how it works. We are not even going to try and explain it here. It can take up to five days of slogging it out to produce a winner winner chicken dinner. However, I will say we did refrain from cucumber sandwiches at tea time and wearing those natty whites at the winery.
