Sensory Notes

This popular new addition to the lineup is quickly becoming a house favorite! Beautifully grown Mendocino Grenache with Chiles Valley Petite Sirah skins this year, added for their beautiful color and interesting aromatics makes another wine unique to our winery and our winemaker Rob Lloyd. The nose is delicately perfumed with hints of smoke and rose petal, yet the fresh smells of pomegranate and raspberry leap from the glass to tingle the olfactory. The palate is delicate and approachable and exhibits soft plush tannins and bright acidity lending itself to a balanced mouthfeel perfect for drinking by itself or pairing with food. Try this wine with a red sauce pasta like Bolognese with Pecorino or with a gamey meat like Smoked Duck Breast with Cranberry Sauce. Enjoy now or age for 1-3 years.
