2018 Estate Grenache Reserve
Fragrant aromatics of lavender, blood orange, freshly picked strawberries, raspberry leaf, and rose petals. The palate follows with a harmony of red fruits, fresh mushrooms, and sweet tobacco. The bright acidity and subtle structure lead to a smooth yet complex wine. The mineral finish and fine tannins leave your palate begging for more. This wine will be a treat on any table!

This wine practically leaps from the glass with a bouquet of astoundingly aromatic yet delicate red fruit complimented by perfumed floral tones, fresh herbs, and subtle spice. It is almost ethereal in its expansiveness while simultaneously remaining remarkably elegant and fresh, somehow coming across as fun and lighthearted yet still genuinely complex and serious. Extremely impressive.
