2009 Grenache Sonoma Mountain 750ml
 
About This Wine:
Our Grenache comes from the Four Brothers Vineyard (Winemaker Mike Sullivan's family vineyard) located along the western slope of Sonoma Mountain. The vineyard is situated in a cool microclimate because of its proximity to the cold wind and fog that flow through the Estero Gap from the Pacific Ocean. This multifaceted wine is produced from a field-blend of three different clones of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Alicante Bouchet. Our Sonoma Mountain Grenache is gushing with aromas of currant, black plum and Bing cherry. The lifted aromas are followed by flavors of red fruit and milk chocolate. Sixteen months of oak aging in neutral French oak barrels have brought out hints of savory herbs, grilled meats, and licorice in this complex and delicious wine.

Vineyard Notes:
Sonoma County experienced its third successive drought in the winter of 2008 and spring of 2009. The colder than average temperatures in spring pushed the season back by almost three weeks at flowering and fruit set. The summer was cool and dry with low mildew and rot pressure. Temperatures warmed in July and August, helping to create a very even verasion and setting the stage for a great vintage. Yields were below average and the stressed vines produced grapes with exceptional color, vibrant acidity, and balance. We are very excited about the 2009 vintage—it may be our best yet!

Winemaker Notes:
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 wind and fog that flow through the Estero Gap from the Pacific Ocean. This multifaceted wine is produced from a field-blend of three different clones of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Alicante Bouchet. Harvested in the early morning, the fruit was rigorously hand sorted prior to destemming and open-top fermentation.
