The pale hue of this Grenache gives way to explosive aromatics and stout grip present in this red-fruited and energetic wine.

Vineyard: Rorick Estate Vineyard
Location: Sierra Foothills, CA
Alcohol: 12.84%
Production: 125 cases

Brilliant pale garnet hue, explosive aromatics and stout grip. Pure, red-fruited expression of the variety, showing tension derived from limestone soils. Crisp, nervy, energetic and delicious.

Fruit was hand-picked and destemmed before undergoing a 21-day fermentation and being pressed down to neutral oak puncheons. Wine was racked off of its lees at 8 months and saw a total of 12 months elevage before being bottled unfined & unfiltered.

Rorick Heritage Vineyard is known for its limestone soils and alpine growing season.
