Grapes for our 2018 Grenache/Syrah were sourced from the Thompson Vineyard in Alisos Canyon, a cool-climate area. In cooler climates, both Grenache and Syrah develop spice in their flavor profiles, and the result is a wine with everything: fruit, body, complexity, ever-evolving. The blend is 55% Grenache and 45% Syrah. Grenache provides the red fruit flavors while Syrah provides dark fruit and depth.

The 2018 Grenache/Syrah leads with aromas of mixed berry, violet and plum sauce. On the palate is a smooth delivery of fruit and backbone with a lingering strawberry/spice finish.
