Description

A dark ruby in the glass, our 2019 Grenache is fruit-forward and aromatic with a crisp acidity. Dark fruit aromas of black raspberry, blackberry and black cherry steer the aromatics backed by baking spices, anise and lavender. We decided to blend this vintage with a touch of Syrah to add tannin and depth. On the palate, black cherry and blackberry preserve shine through rounded out by herbs de Provence, dark chocolate and vanilla.

Grenache’s spice lends itself to be paired with spiced and herb-heavy dishes. Roasted meat and vegetables or a grilled tuna steak are natural choices along with many ethnic foods. 

Wine Critic Reviews
"Hearty aromas of black raspberry, boysenberry and wood smoke make for a rich and bold style of Grenache. The palate carries that weighty style forward, offering bold boysenberry, pepper and dark spices, with ample acidity and grippy tannins to balance the richness." ~ Wine Enthusiast "The 2019 Grenache Rodney's Vineyard impresses with its gorgeous purity of fruit. Crushed red berry, mint, spice, blood orange abound. Vibrant and intense, yet also light on its feet, the Grenache is positively stellar in 2019." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "Ripe cherries, wild strawberries, peppery herbs, and some spicy notes emerge from the 2019 Grenache Rodney's Vineyard, a medium-bodied, supple, nicely balanced, complex Grenache that will drink well for 5-7 years..." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
