The favored grape in blends from the Southern Rhône Valley of France, Grenache on its own brings sunshine & warm berry-like flavors to its eponymous wine. Mostly sourced from the steep mountain terrain of our Anna’s Estate Vineyard (80%) with the balance from the terraces of neighboring Glenrose Vineyard, this 100% Grenache was picked in mid October, a delayed harvest due to the cool 2011 growing season. It shows ripe, supple flavors and an enriching overlay from its nearly two year sojourn in 60% French oak barrels. Softly textured, this is a wine for lighter meals, tapas, or solo sipping. Still youthful, it benefits from aeration ultimately revealing a full palate of spiced berries. Best enjoyed now through 2015.
