Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Grenache displays a medium brick red color and rich aromas of strawberry, red currant, pomegranate, crushed roses, bright leaf tobacco, Provençal lavender, Niçoise olives and lightly spiced incense. The flavors are medium bodied but substantial, with supple red fruits that are intermixed with licorice, cocoa powder, orange pekoe tea and Red Mountain dusty earth. On the back, the wine turns velvety with pressed berries, roasted nuts, framboise and cassis liqueurs, pomegranate seeds and soft charcoal, followed by a ripe moderate tannin finish.

Production Notes
Brix (% sugar) at harvest was 25.3%. Our grapes were hand sorted and mechanically destemmed into a small bin for a 1 day cold soak to bring out flavors and color. Yeast and nutrients were then added to start a 12 day fermentation. Then the “free run” wine was pumped into barrels and the remaining skins were gently pressed to extract remaining wine. into the barrels. The wine then went through a malolactic fermentation which softens the wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs with goat cheese, lamb skewers, high wind warnings and sideways rain.
