Lido Bay's Bitch Tongue Grenache 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Our grapes come from the Red Rock Vineyard of Calaveras County, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range just east of Stockton at about 3,500 feet in elevation. Deep volcanic mineral soils combined with warm days and cool nights contribute to the wine's character. Hand picked and cool fermented. Barrel aged in 20% new French oak.

Love this Grenache. Def like the hint of raspberry and cherries.



Tasting Notes:

Like taking a turn on the deck under a star-filled sky, our Bitch Tongue 2008 Grenache is graceful, smooth and decidedly lithe in body, with sinuous flavors of raspberries and cherries and a light spicy finish. Memories are made of this.

Our grapes come from the Red Rock Vineyard of Calaveras County, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range just east of Stockton at about 3,500 feet in elevation. Deep volcanic mineral soils combined with warm days and cool nights contribute to the wine's character. Hand picked and cool fermented. Barrel aged in 20% new French oak.
