Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This 100% Grenache is a supple and polished wine with ample acidity and chewy minerality on its mouth-coating finish. It offers aromas of dark cherry, plum skin, and strawberry jam coupled with hints of anise and dried herbs du Provence.
Winemaker's Notes
We source grapes from 4 vineyards of various aspects, soils, and elevations ranging from 1300’ to 2800’ to make a wine representative of El Dorado. About half of the fruit is Estate grown at our two unique sites at 1300’ and 2700’ in elevation. The balance comes primarily from Fenaughty in the northern part of the region with a dash of a few other sites as well. This saw a little longer élevage (20 months) than previous vintages giving it more time to come around in barrel. The resulting wine is approachable and ready to enjoy upon release.
