2015 Grenache

90 points - International Wine Review

Tasting Notes
Savory accents weave amoungst flavors of ripe raspberry and black cherry leading to a layered finish framed with nuances of bramble berry, cotton candy and dried rose.  Aromatic and fruit driven, the nose showcases elements of stewed strawberry, tomato stem and gentle undertones of pink peppercorn. The palate is polished with refined acidity and soft tannin. 

Enjoy until 2023

Winemaking 
Grenache is a delicate variety, thus gently winemaking is needed to preserve the gorgeous fruit and velvet texture of the variety. After hand-picking in late September, the fruit was destemmed and fermented in small tanks, with regular pumpovers to aid extraction. In order to let the varietal fruit shine through, the wine was aged in neutral oak barrels with 100% being French oak. Following this mantra further, the wine was left unblended in order to let the Grenache speak as a pure, 100% varietal wine.
