2017 1850 Grenache
This wine boasts traditional Grenache characteristics of spice, bright red fruit, and cedar as it opens, and juicy, spice-laden flavors with medium body on the mid palate and a long finish.
100% Grenache We bled off a portion of the juice from these grapes and produced a rose from the saignee. This allowed us to produced a red wine with greater concentration due to a higher ratio of grape skins to juice. The wine completed fermentation in 10 days and was pressed to barrels for aging.
Pork belly, beef stroganoff, cassoulet, skirt steak, vegetable casserole.
Aged in 40% New American Oak, 40% New French Oak, and 20% neutral oak for 18 months.
