2012 Grenache<br />El Dorado County

2012 Grenache
El Dorado County

As the wine opens in the glass, aromas of cherry liqueur slowly reveal themselves from behind the upfront cinnamon and licorice bouquet. Flavors of rhubarb fill the mouth, as the wines acidity and spice become apparent. The wine finishes with subtle tannin. Perfect for pairing with bright tomato based pasta sauces or cured red meats.

About This Wine:
The Grenache vines at both the Fenaughty Ranch and Goldbud Farms are cared for by Ron Mansfield. All vines are head trained and limited to a specific number of clusters each vintage. Grenache is a sensitive variety, and it takes a watchful eye to deliver it to the winery in choice condition. Leaves are pulled early in the growing season to expose and acclimate this sensitive fruit. Clusters are handpicked at the break of dawn.
