Sam Kim, Wine Orbit “Sweetly ripe and immediately appealing, the splendidly lifted bouquet shows dark plum, olive, cumin and cured meat aromas, followed by a gorgeously rounded palate that's silky and flowing. Elegant yet generous with richness and persistency. At its best: now to 2030.”
Winemaker Notes: Harvested in two parcels from the purest planting of Grenache on the historic vineyard. The first parcel is destemmed into a ceramic egg and aged on skins for several months to extract a fine grain tannin structure. The second parcel is fermented as whole bunches and foot stomped over a period of two weeks giving a broader more grainy tannin profile. A fine acid balance is the hallmark of this vineyard and combined with a fine boned structure will ensure this Grenache is constantly evolving as it ages.
