Tech Details

The Grenache comes from the Lime Kiln AVA in San Benito County, which is limestone rich giving the wine acidity, tension, and minerality. Peter then blended this with Carignan from old head-pruned vines in Lodi to add brambly garrigue and pomegranate-cherry flavors. The wine is finished with 1 Taransaud barrel of Syrah from the Bennett Valley, Sonoma. It is partially whole-cluster fermented and then aged in mixed French and American oak, 30% new.
