2020 Grenache Noir

Our Estate vineyard produces a Grenache Noir with depth and singular typicity. The warm California sunshine allows this wine to achieve ideal ripeness while the significant diurnal shifts, temperature differential from day to night, endow the grapes with a distinct freshness and lively fruit flavors. Fermented on the skins for twenty-one days, our Grenache Noir is aged in 30% new French oak, with the balance in neutral French oak, for 10 months to capture the freshness and spirit of the vineyard. Its luminous, ruby hue gives way to effusive aromatics. The glass abounds with juicy notes of bramble fruits like blackberries and cranberries, as well as stone fruits such as black cherries and Mirabelle plums, ample herbal notes from thyme to garrigue— and subtle hints of lychee, fleur de sel caramels, lavender, espresso and sarsaparilla evoke vivid memories and incite future plans. The palate is rich with lush flavors, running the gamut from baking spice to grilled meats, with lingering notes of confectioners’ sugar, a complete repast for the pondering. Upon further reflection, the wine is generous with ample brambly fruits and notes of violet and Amaro, and a balanced acidity with gravelly minerality to boot.
