2014 Old Vine Grenache

2014 Old Vine Grenache

70+ years. That’s the minimum age of the vines used for our Old Vine Grenache. Their robust fruit is hand picked from Northern California’s Highland Vineyard in a low-yield parcel surrounded by almond and pistachio orchards.

We believe this contributes to the wine’s stony minerality and cultured, strawberry / vanilla / cinnamon nose. Its deft taste balance features those same notes, plus subtle hints of molasses and bourbon from the barrel, soft tannins and a playful peppery finish. This light, quaffable wine is built for savory pairings on the tangier side.

Pairs well with savory, substantial dishes, including:

  • Bacon-forward dishes
  • Hamburgers and sweeter styles of BBQ
  • Baked beans
  • Wild boar ragú
  • Tamales (sweet corn, berry, fatty pork)
  • Head cheese
  • Vietnamese pho
  • Cantonese dishes

  • Production Notes

    Only 190 cases made.
