Thunderbolt Winery Grenache Blend Paso Robles Thunder 2006
Each wine in this blend is quite good by itself. They were fermented with different yeasts to draw out the flavors we were looking for. Spicy: Mourvedre. Fruity: Grenache. Earthy: Syrah. Each wine was placed in 35% new French Oak to soften the edges. Thunder brings the flavors of these three wines together to give you more complexity on the palate. Trials were done to find the best combination of flavors. The result was 48% Grenache, 28% Mourvedre, and 24% Syrah.
Thunderbolt Winery has changed their name to Twilight Cellars. It is a small family winery in the foothills above Paso Robles, CA. Richard and Aurora Gumerman share their family's life long passion for food and wine pairings. Our wines are aged before they are bottled so that when you open them they are ready to drink right away.
