2019 Grenache (750ml)
2019 GrenacheAVA: Yakima Valley, WA
14.0% Alc. by volume
WOW…another 100% single varietal release with this 2019 100% Grenache – originally a Spanish grape (aka Garnacha) – Fantástica! Of course, these grapes hail from Washington’s own Yakima Valley. While the body, tannins, and acidity of this wine are all “medium”….this stunner shows nothing but flair and style (…wait, is that Flamenco music and castanets I hear???). On the nose, enjoy dried strawberries, herbs, hibiscus, and juniper. On the palate, intense flavors of red fruits will light up your mid-palate. Towards the end of your swallow, look for grilled plum and a tich of blood orange citrus. This shorter-finish wine will be a "persona maravillosa" (stunner) on any table because it brilliantly showcases the food it’s served with rather than taking center stage like some of its bigger cousins.
Grenache pairs beautifully with both lighter and roasted meats and vegetables spiced with Asian 5-spice and cumin. If you love this wine, try our new 100% Primitivo or our Étouffant Merlot!
