Grenache 2018 Steel Plow Vineyard - Ernest Vineyards
$36.00   750mL
Owned by Landmark Vineyards, this vineyard is planted into 11 acres of Rhone varietals: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Viognier. It is located in the heart of Sonoma Valley, the land of crescent moons. To realize our vision for Edaphos, we work with Grenache from Block 3 and Block 10 focusing specifically on clones that express the more ethereal characteristics of the varietal.



Vinified using carbonic maceration with a subsequent period of aging in a concrete amphora, we preserved elevated aromatic compounds while delivering the purity of Grenache’s classic flavors.  The aroma is a medley of bright sour cherries, rocks, dried earth and rose hips.  A lively acidity plays with summer watermelon, dried red fruits, juicy Chinese plums and earthy spices on the palate.  The carbonic maceration lends a full and imposing mouthfeel with mild tannins and fresh, youthful acidity.
