2018 Grenache

TASTING NOTES
Vibrant red fruit welcomes the nose with aromas of wet stone and subtle hints of forest floor. The palate delivers a wild red raspberry/cherry licorice that is consistent with its light red color, while savory smoked meat and spices linger in the background to wrap up with a layered, velvety textured finish complimented by fine-grained tannins. This well-balanced wine pairs well with any tapas dish or a coq au vin.

PRODUCTION NOTES
The Salengo Grenache comes in from the highest elevation in the Coble Ranch Vineyard. Planted on gravelly loam and red clay soil, the fruit allows for a complimentary balance of min- erality and red fruit characteristics.

Once received at the Winery, the Salengo Grenache is optically sorted and fermented in a small lot. Optimizing the time on the skins for a concentrated fruit and tannin profile, the Grenache has an extended cold soak before fermentation and then pressed in a traditional basket press. The Grenache is aged in neutral French oak barrels.
