Professional Reviews For This Wine

Vinfolio | Rating: 96

Pomegranate, carbon and blackberry aromas in the nose. The palate has ripe raspberry crispness with a splash of cassis. With air the riveting pure raspberry becomes an exclamation point. This is right up there with the top CA Grenache.

About This Producer

Peter Mathis is Director of Winemaking at Ravenswood, overseeing large scale production. His personal project is a 7+ acre estate in Sonoma County where he grows a Grenache-focused field blend that yields about 500 cases. Quality is exceptional.

Wine Varietal: Grenache

One of the most widely planted varieties in the world, Grenache is most well known as the base variety in wines from the Southern Rhone, such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Cotes-du-Rhone, and Gigondas. Grenache thrives in hot, arid climates all over the world particularly in the Mediterranean and Australia. Its origin is believed to be the Roussillon region of southern France (formerly Spain - where it is grown today and is known as Garnacha). Grenache is used in blends to round out Rhone-style reds to soften harsher varieties such as Syrah and Carignan. It is also used for rose wines. Typical descriptors for Grenache include raspberries, strawberries. black currants, black cherries, black olives, coffee, gingerbread, honey, leather, black pepper, tar, and herbes de Provence.
