Why: Grenache is one of my hallmark varieties and I have wanted to work with this variety because of its suitability to California, its propensity to make both vin de soif and vin de garde wines, and its ability to translate terroir.
Tasting Notes: I often explain that my Grenache is a light and fragrant style which is dictated by the vineyard much more than winemaking because often people expect a boozy ultraripe wine from Grenache. This delicate expression of Grenache showcases a very aromatic nose of crushed strawberry, hibiscus, & tamarind. A lite and silky wine with a low abv. Ever so slightly petillant, best served with a light chill.
