(Archive) GRENACHE VERTICAL - 6 vintages 2007 - 2012
GRENACHE LOVERS DREAM Six delicious vintages in one pack.
From deep in the winery library I have mined some wonderful vintages. They go all the way back to the exceptional 2007 vintage.
Grenache was planted for me on the high hillside here above the winery by neighbor Chris Conley. Chris used his trusty caterpillar D3 to daringly carve a spectacular amphitheater of terraces out of rock. The grapes grow in a retrained manner up there. Heavy thinning assures that only the very best fruit is harvested.
These wines are all 100% Grenache with layers of red fruits that with age take on more complex earthy components.
It is an interesting delight to explore a grape and taste how it changes with age.
