2016 San Saba "House" Grenache-Syrah
Every year our winemakers experiment to see how our grapes react to various treatments. Some of these experiments are too good to let go and this is one of those successes. We've bottled this wine and there are only 49 cases available in our tasting room or on our website. Grapes were harvested earlier than standard practice to capture some bright acidic energy. Oak was restricted to only 10% new so the focus remains on the character of the grape. The resulting wine has licorice and allspice aromas leading to a savory bland of black cherry, coffee, mocha and vanila flavors. This wine is smooth and easy on the palate with a pleasing, round finish.
