2012 Grenache

Regular price $48.00

A small two and a half barrel selection of Grenache from the Avery Vineyard five miles west of Hellsgate Vineyard, this wine expresses the elegant, fruit-driven and earthy charm of Grenache in a very pure form. A lengthy maceration, native yeast fermentation, and aging in all neutral French oak barrels, allows richness and complexity to take center stage.  Like Pinot noir, Grenache has relatively less color in the skins than most red grapes and should be judged more by the layers, texture and depth of a varietal that reflects so clearly the sites in which it is grown, in this case 29 year old vines hugging the slopes on the Washington side of the Columbia River, here producing aromas of red fruits, pepper, menthol, and flowers, along with flavors of wild raspberries, strawberries, white pepper, leather, gravel, cola, and provencal herbs.
