Description

"Rich redfruit aromas meet with rose petals and loamy soil on the concentrated nose of this bottling. Flavors of rose petal and lavender consume the palate, giving depth to the crisp pomegranate and red-currant elements on this lively, textural wine." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

"...gorgeous. Plump, racy and also deeply varietal in expression, the Grenache is absolutely delicious. Sweet floral and spice notes wrap around a core of bright red berry fruit in this succulent, mid-weight Grenache. Silky impeccable and inviting, the Grenache is a winner in this range." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

Dark ruby in color, this Grenache was blended with 12% Syrah to add structure and depth to a palate that carries notes of black cherry, dark chocolate, Herbs de Provence, blackberry preserve, black currant finishing with a hint of vanilla. On the nose, dark fruits dominate but are complemented by baking spices, anise, vanilla and lavender.

The 2016 Grenache will hold up to hearty entrees like cassoulet or spiced / herb-heavy dishes and of course will always pair nicely with grilled, stewed or braised meats.
