Winemaker's Notes

The 1999 Stolpman Vineyard Grenache is a medium- dark wine. It has a cola-grapey- pomegranate nose, flavors of spice, a complex, high tannin mouth feel, and a lingering finish. A small quantity of Stolpman Vineyard, Durrell clone Syrah (24%) was blended in to add structure and complexity. Although new oak was used sparingly in this wine, the native grape tannins show through to fill your palate.

Food Pairing: This wine is slightly lighter than our other reds wines and pairs with a wide variety of foods. It is a superb Thanksgiving or Easter feast wine. Its fine tannin structure and grapey- pomegranate-spice aroma goes well with foods you might pair with a good Pinot Noir. Try it with braised or roasted beef, game hens, roast pork with baked apples. Less sweet, fruit sauces work well - try cherries, raspberries, or even black figs.
