Winemaker's Notes

Bright indigo with crimson highlights. On the nose, intensely perfumed English country garden, including english rose, violets and lavender, delicately integrated with musk, turkish delight and spice. Tastes of ripe, red berry fruits of mulberry, blueberries, and raspberries. Mid-palate offers strength and richness of fruit but refinement with delicate tannins, culminating a long, persistent finish.

"This is Tintara's first varietal Grenache to be released in the U.S., and what a splash it'll make. Lifted cherry and violet aromas have a light wheat-biscuit accent. The palate follows suit with the same violet and black cherry notes. It's fresh and vibrant, with a chalky-mineral finish. "It's really hard to get people to notice it," laments winemaker Rob Mann of the variety. With this wine, Rob, your troubles are over."
