2018 Grenache

This medium body grenache is full of wild cherries, Herbs de Provence and white pepper. Bright acid and well-integrated tannins leave a long lingering finish. The focus here is on precision rather than power. Drinking well now, this elegant and complex wine will continue to develop over the next 10+ years.
