SKU: FZ18

Beautiful aromas of red fruits, licorice and black pepper, flavores of cherry and spice that lends a welcome sense of delicacy. The wine is quite dry but flavorful along the spiced and macerated red and black berry and plum range, and it’s powered by vibrant acidity for propulsive energy. Tannins, on the other hand, feeling carved from dusty underbrush, briers and brambles, are tranquil, deeply set and inexorable. 100 percent Grenache aged in neutral oak with native fermentation.  Appellation: Lodi,  Winemaker: Michael J McCay.

This wine is quite dry but flavorful along the spiced and macerated red and black berry and plum range, and it’s powered by vibrant acidity for propulsive energy. Tannins, on the other hand, feeling carved from dusty underbrush, briers and brambles, are tranquil, deeply set and inexorable.
