2019 Grenache



2019 Grenache


Varietals: Grenache & a dollop of Cinsault

Vineyards: Luna Matta, John Sebastiano

Region: Central Coast, CA


Bottle Size: 750ml


Pure Grenache expression without any new oak impact. Sourced from grand cru coastal vineyards that grow miniscule crops of small cluster concentrated Grenache with the cool climate extending their growing season allowing for very intense varietal characteristics to shine. Both Luna Matta and John Sebastiano are extreme, rugged vineyards with Luna Matta having calcareous soil and extreme diurnal temperature shifts and John Sebastiano having very sandy steep slopes and a clear line to the ocean with  violent off shore winds blasting the vines. A very small amount of Luna Matta Cinsault cofermented with Grenache add a hint of complexity. Ripe, concentrated, complex aromas and flavors  of Grenache fruit and incense pair with a dense, tannic mouthfeel, expressing Central Coast Rhone fruit at its pinnacle.
