This Grenache comes from the Four Brothers Vineyard along the northwestern slope of Sonoma Mountain. The vineyard is situated in a cool microclimate because of its proximity to the cold winds and fog that blow through the Estero Gap from the Pacific Ocean. This multifaceted wine is produced from a field-blend of 3 different clones of Grenache, Syrah and a small amount of Alicante Bouchet.
Harvested in the early morning, the fruit was rigorously hand sorted prior to destemming and open-top fermentation. Open-top fermentation with indigenous yeast produced a wine that will continue to improve with time in the cellar for 5-8 years.
