Red fruits such as strawberry, cranberry and raspberry dominate the nose with a layer of white pepper in the background. This wine exhibits great mid-palate with soft tannin structure that finishes with a balanced level of acidity and spiciness. 


Vineyard Notes

Grenache is a red grape that originated in Northern Spain. Today, it is one of the most widely planted grapes in the world, with important production in Spain, Australia, California and the Southern Rhone region of France. Our Grenache comes from Dark Horse Ranch, a 160 acre Biodynamic certified ranch and vineyard owned and operated by Heath and Paul Dolan. Located 8 miles north of the town of Hopland along the banks of the upper Russian River and sitting at 750 feet of altitude, this site provides outstanding conditions for growing this late ripening, sun thirsty varietal.
