We aim for weapons-grade fruit from our sundry Grenache vineyards, with the intent of producing killer Cigare, but sometimes we end up Clos (but no Cigare). Very pretty opalescent ruby color. Exceptional spicebox nose: black pepper with hints of clove/gingerbread, bing cherry, red currant and Santa Rosa plum. Very soft, plush tannins in the mouth; this is the genius of Grenache. Refreshing, savory texture, making this a wine that pairs exceptionally well with a range of dishes, not the least being a peppered ahi tuna steak. Best served with a slight chill, especially as the weather warms up.
