The 2020 Grenache Reserve boasts rich yet lively fruit aromatics & flavors, with delightful nuances that keep you coming back for more. The bouquet is perfumed with lavender & violets, adding lift to the deeply concentrated aromas of dried blueberry, Brooks cherry, & candied orange peel. Rich notes of toasted coconut & smoked cedar build in the glass, expressing this wine’s true luxurious elegance. The palate boasts notes of fresh wild strawberry, brown sugar roasted cranberry, & dried orange, which harmonize beautifully with a dusting of cardamom, allspice, & black pepper. Glimpses of deftly woven tannins & fine mineral accents peak out between the abundant fruit & exotic spices. The Grenache Reserve is outstandingly drinkable now but can be tucked away in your cellar for up to 8 years. Drink now through 2030.
