Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This light-to-medium bodied Grenache is ruby red in color with aromas of dark fruits. The palate has similar fruit notes such as black currant, with hints of cinnamon, subtle vanilla, and citrus blossom, coupled with silky tannins, and a persistent, lengthy finish.
Vineyard Notes
The 2016 growing year proved to be another dry and sunny season. A perfect spring and early bud break/veraison, coupled with warm daytime temperatures and accompanying winds, led to another incredible harvest for the central coast. The warmer than normal temperatures of the Pacific Ocean and Monterey Bay led to warmer night time temps causing elegant acids, earlier ripening and a longer hang time.
