Grenache

2004 Grenache
Santa Barbara County

Grenache seems to be enjoying more and more success around the world. In the past, we have primarily used Grenache as a blending grape for wines like Revelation. But last year we made our first 100% Grenache wine (called Gypsy, this year we are calling it Grenache) and we had outstanding results! (And feedback!) So, we are very excited to once again have this wine back in the tasting room. Our Grenache was primarily grown on Rodney’s Vineyard at the Fess Parker winery. This is one of the last blocks we pick every year and 2004 was no exception. After picking the grapes in mid October and fermenting the grapes for 15 days, we aged the wine in 100% Cadus French oak barrels. We decided to put the wine into year-old barrels to ensure that the oak flavors would not be too dominant in the finished wine.

This wine has wonderful aromatics and shows bright cherry & strawberry fruit flavors on the palate. You’ll find enticing cinnamon/spice notes reminiscent of apple pie along with slight smoky, toasty oak flavors. It is a wine with good balance, structure and soft, approachable tannins. We believe it is an age-worthy wine, but also bet it won’t last long in your cellar after you
