Winemaker's Notes

The Grenache vineyard block thrives on our high, southwest-facing slope. Aged in French Oak, this full-bodied wine exudes aromas of bing cherry and clove and flavors of plum, blackberry and cherry wth hints of vanilla and spice on the finish. 

Tasting Notes

Our 2017 Grenache opens with aromas of bing cherry and clove on the nose. The rich mouth feel contains flavors of plum, blackberry and cherry. Warm hints of vanilla and spice are present in the finish. The mid palate body continues to the end with a smooth, well-rounded structure.
