A blend of Grenache and Syrah from ’11 and ’12. The ’11 fruit was a blend of Thompson Grenache and Syrah. Very elegant, soft and medium bodied, we realized that this wine could benefit from more Grenache intensity for Punch status. The ’12 fruit is 100% Grenache from Watch Hill Vineyard, also located in the Alisos Canyon corridor. That fruit had tremendous red berry punch fruit and acidity. Toning it down a bit and adding complexity with the ’11 fruit made perfect sense.
Very vibrant acid and juicy red. Still tight, showing a whole array of red fruit: Pomegranate, cranberry, wild strawberry, cherry and raspberry. Cola and cedar emerge on the finish.
