Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this wine come from the Brave Oak Vineyard in Paso Robles, just east of the 101. We had the Grenache custom planted for us in 2000 to the ENTAV clone simply named Clone 513. At the time of planting, it was the newest and most hyped of the available “French Clones” and it seems to be living up to its promise. The vineyard is farmed to our specs by the very capable and seasoned grower, Tony Domingos. He trims the “wings” of the clusters in the summertime, leaving us just the “heart” of the cluster, where the best flavors come from. This is a follow up to the 2005 vintage, which was a big hit with you all, so we crafted it in the same exact way. While the wine is not as dark as our various Syrah bottlings, it is a very powerful wine, with a medium-full body and soft lingering finish. The aromas and flavors of this wine make it obvious that you are enjoying a Grenache…they include the tell-tale wild strawberry, black cherry and a spicy peppery quality. We decided to help preserve the fruit-forward qualities of this wine and bottled it in the Stelvin closure. It is ready to drink so you could wait a few weeks to a few months before you crack this one. If you are really patient, you could even wait 3 years for this wine to live up to its true potential.
