Grenache and Blends
Huntsman, 2017

$ 40.00

This wine is a synthesis of sites where wildlife and viticulture meet at the edge of civilization. From both the far eastern and western edges of Sonoma County, the wine speaks of more of this general wildness than of a specific variety or site. It should pair well with the types of foods found in the area as well: game, flavorful mushrooms and the like.

Winemaker's Notes

Comforting, mother-earth, old world inspired non-fruit notes in this wine are provocative. Petrichor (rain on dry soil/grasses) is the first impression upon opening the bottle. With air a conifer/juniper note is revealed along with subtle dark fruits. Aligning and balancing the Syrah and Grenache is important for this wine. Neither should dominate. Proportions vary as do the assertiveness of the components in any given vintage. It is exciting when the interplay brings forth characters not evident in either one alone.
