Syv Grenache

The 2017 Santa Ynez Valley Grenache starts off with a big nose of raspberry jam, molasses, and nutmeg, along with floral aromas of violets and lavender. A massive barrage of strawberry and raspberry jam is followed by a well-rounded core of juicy pomegranate and spice. The finish is long, with soft tannins and hints of thyme and white pepper.

    The base 2017 Grenache (100% vari­etal) comes all from the Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard in San­ta Ynez and was destemmed and brought up in tank. It reveals a medi­um ruby/​plum col­or as well as beau­ti­ful notes of black cher­ries, ground pep­per, sap­py herbs, and hints of vio­lets. Medi­um-bod­ied, ele­gant, with fine tan­nins and ter­rif­ic bal­ance, it’s an out­stand­ing exam­ple of Cal­i­for­nia Grenache that’s going to evolve for over a decade. Matu­ri­ty: 2019 – 2029.

    Pale to medi­um ruby, the 2017 Grenache has a nose of pow­dered sug­ar, sweet red cher­ries, red berry pre­serves, vio­let, blue­ber­ries and dusty earth with a savory under­cur­rent. Medi­um-bod­ied, it offers loads of ripe red berries fla­vors with chalky tan­nins and good fresh­ness on the fin­ish. 950 cas­es pro­duced. Drink 2019 — 2023.
