2017 Grenache

Tasting Notes
A medley of red fruit, dried wild flower and baking spice provide a warm, welcoming nose. Aromatics of dusted bramble berry and cranberry compote prelude a soft entry laced with a juicy acidity which captures cherry cola, black currant and caramel swirl for a surprisingly nuanced palate. Fresh pomegranate, ripe raspberry, blood orange zest and vanilla bean carry a gentle, layered essence.

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.

Vineyard Notes

Vineyard Notes
The Cass Estate Vineyard, located southeast of the town of Paso Robles, exemplifies the quality of the Paso Robles region with its warm days, cool coastal breezes, and exceptional soils. Resting at 900 feet of elevation, the 160-acre vineyard is planted to 11 varieties on a large terrace above the Huer Huero River. Deposited over centuries, the diverse alluvial soils make for an expressive site that produces fruit of incredible quality.
