83% Grenache, 12% Syrah, 5% Counoise

Ripe red raspberry, grenadine, chimichurri, and fennel pollen are just a few of the intoxicating aromas that introduce this stunning Grenache. The palate is packed with flavors of Bing cherry, cracked black pepper, citrus zest and just a hint of botanicals. The chalky, yet creamy mid-palate is brightened with sappy acidity that provides a breathtakingly long finish. 83% Grenache, 12% Syrah, 5% Counoise. Fermented 25% Whole Cluster.
