Grant and August Mixed Six Pack (3 of each!)
2018 Grant Grenache
Our Grant Grenache takes its name not only from Grant’s Farm, our ancestral home but also from President Ulysses S. Grant, who was its original Farmsteader. Aromatics of dusty pomegranate and cherry carry into the mouth, alongside savory herbs and light tobacco accents. The tannins are lightly tactile and palate-cleansing, while the acidity is glittering and mouthwatering, both carrying into a refreshing finish.
This medium-bodied Grenache would love a bit of smoke, so we suggest enjoying the Grant Grenache with fresh grilled vegetables served alongside risotto. It’s a perfect transition wine; with the freshness for enjoying while grilling outside in a late summer afternoon, and the structure to carry through your meal.
2018 August Red
The August Rhône Red blend honors family while celebrating a bright and bountiful season. Both my father and grandfather, August, inspired us to share the best of what we have with family and friends. The month of August is also a time of harvest when we gather to share the fruits of the land.
With dusty, and spiced aromatics showcasing a mix of red and black fruits, the August Red picks up flavors of black tea, exotic perfumes, and smoke as it moves into the palate. With lightly tactile tannin and lingering acidity, this Syrah-Grenache blend offers plenty of flavor through a nimble frame.
