Tasting Notes:
In the duff beneath a redwood canopy, a pair of hawks are having a
picnic at dusk. Our 2017 Grenache is a dry, fruit-forward, well-balanced
wine of acidity, tannins, and body. Raspberries, cinnamon, cherries,
strawberries, star anise, and black cherries are some of the flavors that
come through. An adult fruit roll-up if you will. Pairs well with seared tuna
steak, roasted root vegetables, braised short ribs, and carnitas tacos.
