2021 Estate Grenache
92 pts - Antonio Galloni

The Estate Grenache is made entirely from fruit grown on our estate vineyard, tucked into the slopes of Folded Hills. Grower Ruben Solorzano meticulously farms the site. Together, Ruben and winemaker Michael Brughelli shepherd the grapes, and Michael selects the optimal moment for harvest.

Sourced from our LAWN and Golden Eagle parcels and picked early in the morning, the fruit was de-stemmed with 10% whole cluster remaining. After a few days on skins, these were pressed and aged for 12 months in 25% new French oak to enhance the texture and depth of the wine while preserving the purity and transparency of the site.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Fragrant fruity aromatics of cranberry, pomegranate, and freshly picked strawberries. The palate follows with a harmony of dried herbs and vanilla. The bright acidity and weighty structure lead to a smooth yet complex wine.
92 pts., Antonio Galloni "The 2021 Grenache Estate is a powerful wine, despite its light color and mid-weight structure. Clonal selection and a touch more oak add depth, but the freshness of the year is what stands out most. Cherry pit, dried flowers, dried herbs, mint, cinnamon and a touch of oak all run through the 2021."
