Grapes were harvested October 1-8 at an average of 25.2 brix and was partially destemmed. The fruit was cold soaked for 4 days before being fermented in small batch stainless steel tanks for 12-16 days. The Grenache then aged for 9 months in French Oak (18% New) before being bottled on 7/15/16.

Our 2015 Grenache is a jewel; bright ruby red, it seems to glow in your glass. On the nose, rich notes of wild strawberry and raspberries sing with softer notes of rhubarb, vanilla, and cherry cola. These aromas carry onto the palate where they are joined by delicate flavors of juicy red fruit and well worn leather, balanced with the soft minerality of pencil lead and a bite of white pepper. This truly delicious wine is a marvel on its own, or paired with your favorite soft to medium bodied cheese.
