Grenache Harvest

Grenache;  the Zinfandel lovers' Pinot Noir...

If you've never had it, don't be scared. Leading in with cherry and strawberry, it typically heads for France with tobacco and leather, spice and earth. Those flavors somehow work incredibly well together.
Harvested 1.932 tons today.
301 vines = 1.932 tons = 310 gallons = 5 barrels = 125 cases

In the meantime, while you are waiting for the 2014 vintage to hit the streets, we still have 49 bottles left of 2011 Grenache.
