Tasting Notes

An elegant Grenache that opens with a nose of strawberry layered with cinnamon and spice.  Bright expressive flavors of pomegranate and raspberry fill the palate and lead to a creamy smooth, cream-soda like finish. 6 bottle limit per customer.

 

Winemaker Notes

Grenache is native to Spain and is known as "granacha" in its homeland. Here at Lava Cap, our estate grown Grenache is recognized for its beautiful body and aromatic nose. We planted our Grenache in 1999 in the lower region of our vineyard.

Our 2014 vintage was handpicked and then carefully sorted by hand for only the best grape clusters. After cold soaking for two days, fermentation proceeded with selected yeasts. The barrel fermentation for this vintage has added suppleness to the wine. The 2014 Grenache was aged in small French oak barrels.
