Winemaker Jon Phillips Notes
At bottling, a friend of mine who is a Pinot Noir grower proclaimed, great job on your next release of Pinot Noir… problem – this is Grenache! The growing conditions in 2015 were perfect for this Rhône varietal because it's grown in the coolest part of Sonoma Valley and this variety likes warmer weather. I produced this wine very much in the same way that I produce Pinot Noir, destemming the fruit but not crushing the berries, allowing for a gentle fermentation producing a wine that is medium bodied full of strawberry & cream notes with hints of ceder.
