Tasting Notes
I’m a big fan of cool climate Grenache! The South Central Coast is one of the only cool growing areas where Grenache can consistently ripen without getting rained on. The aromas are heady and spicy, with a black pepper character normally associated with Syrah. It has that classic wild cherry aroma as well. In the mouth it is full bodied without being heavy, great acidity and that small addition of Syrah helps it sneak in just under 14% alcohol. Drink this young for its spicy exuberant fruit, or put it in the cellar for 10-15 years to drink at its best!
