2015 Wrath Grenache, Alta Loma Vineyard
This Grenache comes from the certified Biodynamic Alta Loma Vineyard, a sloping, hillside site located just south of the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. The vineyard is exposed to the strong winds that flow each afternoon from Monterey Bay to the north. The long, cool growing season allows the grapes to mature slowly and develop extraordinary varietal and regional character.
Deeply colored for the varietal, this Grenache is intense, high-toned and elegant. The aromatics offer notes of pine forest, juniper, spice, earth and wet stone. The palate is powerful, structured, rich and direct with a long finish that includes noticeable, well-integrated tannins.
