Our 2014 Grenache is an elegant wine with a floral bouquet hinting of roses. The red hue in the glass prepares your palette for a taste of red cherries and red raspberries that spread evenly across your taste buds. Aged in a flex tank this wine is all about the fruit balanced nicely with acidity. This medium-bodied wine finishes nicely with a long lingering subtle spiciness.

Varietal Fun Facts: Grenache is believed to have originated in Spain (where it is known as Granacha) and it is now planted worldwide. A very versatile grape it can exhibit flavors from red to black fruit flavors that may be spicy or earthy. Low in acid and tannins with moderate to high alcohol levels Grenache wines don’t require lengthy aging to be ready to go. This is not to say Grenache can not be successfully barrel-aged to produce a cellar-worthy wine but this comes with an associated cost. Grenache wines from the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region in France can set you back 600 big ones.
