2016 Chamisal Vineyards Cinq a Sept Grenache
The cool climate of the Edna Valley is at the limit of where great Rhône-style wines can be made. Our Rhônes favor complexity and texture rather than the jammy fruit-forwardness of their warmer-climate brethren. These wines are much more northern Rhône than southern Rhône in style. Rich in black fruit, game and spice aromatics, with big, broad tannins.
A beautiful nose that leaps out of the glass with aromas of baked strawberries and cinnamon spice. On the palate, the wine is plush and intense with notes of ripe black fruits. The wine has a lingering and juicy finish.
