(90% grenache and 10% syrah): Bright, full red. Strawberry liqueur, cherry, flint and a whiff of maple syrup on the nose; reminded me of Philip Togni's Ca' Togni dessert wine. Then supple and surprisingly dry, with harmonious acidity leavening the wine's mouthfilling texture. Finishes with a light dusting of tannins. Very grenache, but I wanted a bit more primary fruit and lift.

About This Producer


Ray and Nancy Coursen founded Elyse Winery in 1987 with their first production of Morisoli Vineyard Zinfandel. They continued to purchase grapes until 1997 when they bought a small winery on Hoffman Lane. After initially focusing on Zinfandel, the winery expanded into Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah and more recently Coursen has made small quantities of Chardonnay, a Cal-Ital blend called Nero Misto, a Chenin Blanc, Rose, and a Grenache called Le Corbeau. The winery has two labels, Elyse and Jacob Franklin, named after their children. The Jacob Franklin label was started in 1998, featuring a low-yield Petite Sirah, a Bordeaux blend called #60 Mon Chou and a Hoffman Lane Cabernet.
