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
Only 190 cases made.
