Wine Review: This slightly cloudy dark red colored Grenache opens with a mild red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and slight acidic. The flavor profile is an earthy graphite with notes of cranberry and red currant. I also detected hints of under-ripe strawberry towards the end. The finish is dry and savory. This wine reminded me of a Grand Cru Beaujolais. Intended to be served chilled. I enjoyed it cool. I would serve it with a wild mushroom bruschetta on crunchy cheese French baguette toasts. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The defining characteristic is whole-cluster fermentation (carbonic maceration). We use all native yeast for spontaneous fermentation, all native bacteria for malolactic fermentation, and add no Sulphur throughout fermentation. The goal is a very hands-off approach to winemaking that highlights the purity of fruit, and deliciousness of a lighter-bodied red wine. The result is a fresh, crisp wine, that preferably should be served slightly chilled, which has a back bone of acidity and an unmistakable minerality that leaves your palate wanting more.
