Winemaker's Notes

Picked the Grenache grapes for this wine at two different times and sugar levels. Part of the grapes were picked at 22.9 brix to capture the tart cherries, strawberries, and bright acidity. We harvested the remaining grapes at 26.0 brix to bring the black cherries, richness, and spice to the party.
