Ratings & Reviews

Tasting Notes from Heidi Barrett (2016 Vintage):
"This beautiful Grenache comes from the foothills of California in El Dorado County. It is garnet in color with very enticing aromas of plums, dried herbs, earth, French Oak, and rose petals. Flavors mirror the aromatics in a wine that flows across the palate lush, soft and juicy, with concentrated flavors of cherries and plums. Restrained tannins add structure and texture without heaviness. This reminds me of wines from the Rhone region of France. Very tasty & easy to love - I hope you do!"
