2020 Ballard Canyon PMV Grenache “Libre”
The concept of "Libre," letting the vines freely grow as they want to, was born years ago. Now, our evolution towards free standing bus vine Grenache adds a new chapter to its story with the addition of Block 1 Grenache on Purisima Mountain Vineyard. Block 1 vines are grown like a small tree rather than a bush, with the goal of pushing and spreading the fruit zone out vertically instead of horizontally. This 100% Grenache wine was created from the new Block 1 and a tiny, exceptional crop from Block 8. Aromas of jammy raspberry, strawberry, kirsch, licorice, spice and a slight gamey edge explode out of the glass reflecting flavors that are deep and ripe. Loaded in the mouth with lush layers of red fruits and spices, the wine is big and deep with great structure and tannins that carry the flavors on the very long finish. Complex notes of chocolate, kirsch and framboise round out the flavors on the back end. The 2020 "Libre" should age beautifully over the next 20 years.
