DescriptionVARIETALS. 100% Grenache
VINEYARDS. Templeton District, Paso Robles.
WINEMAKING. Though seldom seen as a single varietal, Grenache is the backbone of the great Châteauneuf-du-Pape blends, and this limited-edition release is resplendent with that classic southern Rhône ripeness. Barrel-aged for 18 months in French oak (50% new barrels)
Aroma: a rich and opulent red, its nose reveals multi-faceted aromas of dark fruit, blood orange and grapefruit, with spicier impressions of cinnamon, lavender and a hint of dried violets.
Palate: The entry is velvety and warm, the components on the palate are well-balanced with a tasty vein of acidity, and the complex aromatics return to grace a lengthy finish.
FOOD PAIRING. This versatile wine can be enjoyed on it’s own or with a myriad of dishes such as sautéed petrale sole in herb butter sauce, Époisses de bourgogne cheese, creamy au gratin potatoes, or Chinese five-spice chicken.
