2020 Malene Grenache Noir
Sourced from Morro View Vineyard. This vineyard is one of our closest neighbors, less than a mile NW from the Estate. As such, it shares our cool climate and produces grenache that is stylistically and qualitatively very similar to our Estate Grenahce with great purity of fruit and exeptional acid retention.
Grenache Noir is a traditional component of classic Rosé and one of our favorite varietals when bottled on its own. Our 2020 Grenache Noir displays the exuberant black fruit flavors and rich, spice characteristics typically found in Grenache from cool coastal climates. The aromas are bright and bursting with notes of black raspberry, pie crust, and bay leaf on the nose. On the palate, the wine has vibrant acidity, fine-grained tannins, and notes of cracked white pepper and black cherries.
