Description
 
A perfect Grenache for Pinot drinkers, this chillable red wine is bursting with fruit flavors of wild strawberries, raspberry preserves, and cherry fruit roll up, highlighted with cinnamon and white pepper spices. It's delicious, it's versatile, and we have paired with anything from pizza to duck to grilled chicken and vegetables...the fresh acidity and light tannin finish would even hold up to red meats like Hanger Steak and Filet Mignon. Only 56 cases produced, so please buy this wine before we drink it all!

Winemaking
This is our first time working with the younger vines from the top of a steep vineyard on the east side of Amador County, so we wanted to make a light, fruit-driven wine that could be served chilled and perfect for sipping. To achieve this, we sorted 50% of the fruit whole cluster into the bottom of our large, open-air fermenters and then destemmed the remaining 50% of the Grenache on top of the clusters. The wine underwent a 16-day native fermentation before we lightly pressed the juice into old French Oak barrels, where it aged for seven months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
