Long, warm, summer days and shallow, mountain soils at our estate vineyards have helped craft the premium grapes for this delicious, full-bodied wine. Purple in color with heady aromas and flavors of blackberries, strawberries, ripe watermelons and violets, this Grenache has good structure, balanced acidity, soft tannins, and a lingering finish. Aged in French Oak, 250 cases of this wine were produced. To be enjoy with seafood, cheese, and light meat dishes with chicken, ham or lamb.  

Vineyard Notes

A long Sierra Foothills growing season with southern facing rocky soils have crafted this lovely full-bodied Malbec.
