This is a beautiful example of Livermore Valley Grenache, with lush cranberry, cherry and cinnamon flavors complemented by hints of cedar and lavender. It is a medium-bodied wine with balanced acidity and medium tannins that continue on through the finish.

Sourced entirely from our Marina Ranch in the Livermore Valley, these grapes were ultra-farmed, handpicked into half-ton bins, and hand sorted in order to ensure premium quality. The juice was gently pressed into one-ton fermentation bins and the skins were punched down twice daily in order to maximize color and tannin extraction until primary fermentation was completed prior to moving into barrel.
The wine finished malolactic fermentation in barrel to create a richer mouthfeel.
This single vineyard Grenache was aged for nine months in oak barrels prior to bottling.
