Our first vintage from this legend of a vineyard in the far northern reaches of Mendocino County. Just 12 miles from the Pacific at at 2400 feet in elevation, this is a cooler site. And it shows in the wine. Cranberry mixed with forest floor and bramble burst from the glass. Followed by hard cherry candy and ripe red raspberry. This is just a picture perfect showing of a cold climate Grenache Noir. Fermented 100% whole cluster and aged for two years in once used French oak barrels which give it just a touch of oak. And bottled unfined and unfiltered to preserve freshness and laser like focus.
Double Gold, 2019 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
“Rose water, blueberry crumble and a touch of candied character are the main attractions on the nose. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and plenty of soft, sweet fruit. Drink now.” 90 Points – James Suckling
