Gold-American Fine Wine Invitational
This beautiful vineyard in the heart of the Russian River Valley is the perfect sight for Grenache. It's cool enough, warm, enough, windy enough, paired with a great grower and great soils makes for one of our favorite Single Vineyard Rhones in the portfolio. All Bud wood originated from Rhone Guru John Albans' vineyards.
100% Grenache comprised of Chateauneuf du Pape suitcase clones.
Aged in very large neutral format barrels (600L), this is one of my favorite wines we make every year. This is an incredible food wine in the lush mouthfeel, complex layers, yet finishing with so much roundness and finesse.
