Ojai Vineyard Grenache, John Sebastiano Vineyard

Often blended, standing alone in this instance, with one foot firmly in Europe thanks to early picking at ideal phenolic ripeness takes serious skill and meticulous care. More in tune with Pinot Noir, earthy influenced fruity aromas, a hint of kirsch, lavender and allspice. Once opened, it will expand nicely, revealing layers of depth and richness.

13.5%.

Style:
Medium bodied, fresh yet rich, red wine.

County:
USA

Region:
Sta Rita Hills, California.

Varietals:
Grenache.

Vines:
John Sebastiano Vineyard, Organic.

Vinification:
Traditional open top fermenters, 30% whole cluster, 15 months in old French oak.

Case Size:
12x75cl.

Suggestion:
This wine is intriguing and utterly beguiling. Fresh on approach, with pepper and spice, bright acidity. Once opened up (suggest decanting) the wine shows its full complexity, with rich chocolate, herbs and mineral, earth. Quite incredible.
