Thompson Vineyard’s Grenache is in extremely high demand and we're fortunate for our allocation each year from this remarkable location. These 100% organically dry-farmed vines naturally yield fewer grapes, and pour all their energy into ripening vibrant, undiluted grape clusters. Harvested before sunrise on
September 17, 2015, it enjoyed a 24-hour cold soak, followed by a 14-day fermentation that included 10% whole clusters, before being pressed into neutral oak barrels and aged for 18 months.

"There's a strong streak of elegant herbs, from bay leaf to mint to thyme, set against a plummy background, along with turned earth and rose petals, on the nose of this bottling. Rose hips, marjoram and tangy pomegranate flavors show on the lively sip, which also benefits from grippy tannins."
