2016 Reserve Grenache/Syrah
We grow Grenache and Syrah adjacent to each other at Jespersen Ranch. We watched as the grapes developed natural brilliance in tandem and then took the rare opportunity of a same-day harvest to co-ferment the two. Grenache from this site has an inherent brightness and freshness that balances the richly textured Syrah. We co-fermented the grapes in a 1,200L French oak tank and then aged the wine in that cask for 17 months before bottling. The result is a captivating blend of bright fruit and black pepper with hints of cardamom and brushy sage. This ‘Late Maturity’ wine is a delight to enjoy now. Decanting recommended.
