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.

90 Points – Wine Enthusiast
"Very light in the glass with a slight hint of brownish red, this delicate Grenache offers dried cherry, framboise, dried hibiscus and rose-petal aromas on the nose. It's starting to show a touch of age already on the palate, where dried cherry-paste flavors met with mace and more baking spices." -Matt Kettmann
