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!
