2021 Reserve Grenache

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"Sleek, with a steely focus highlighting vibrant cherry and pomegranate flavors and intriguing garrigue, licorice and crushed stone accents. Finishes with snappy tannins. Drink now through 2031. 389 cases made." Tim Fish, Senior Editor, Napa

-----------------

At 1800 feet above sea level, from atop the highest peak on our Estate, the breathtaking panoramas of Paso Robles were a favorite of our co-founder Lloyd Messer.  Ascending the east-facing slope that leads to this lookout, is a head-trained block of Grenache interplanted with small amounts of Syrah and Mourvèdre.  Harvested and fermented as a singular field blend, this bottling captures a highly focused expression of place.

Tasting Notes
A perfect American flag red hued Grenache with a wide range bouquet of garigue, leather and raspberry. In a wine that can only be described as beautiful, brightness and richness overlap each other supplying the full spectrum of possibilities from a well-made Grenache. Strawberry, rhubarb, crushed rock and white pepper all mingle with spicy tannins making an exquisite palate.
