Winemaker's Notes

From the heart of California's Rhone Zone, the first EQUUS Grenache is made entirely from fruit grown on the James Berry Vineyard, an impeccably managed hillside vineyard located in west Templeton. Contributing sweetness & spice, Grenache Noir often represents the largest single variety in the classic Southern Rhone blend of Chateauneuf-du-Pape and, in Spain, dubbed "Garnacha", it's a frequent contributor to the typical red Rioja blend. We think you'll find EQUUS Grenache to be lush and fruit-forward with bright acidity and a lingering finish.

This lush wine is fruit forward, with pronounced bing cherry, plum jam and raspberry aromas that lead to lush, ripe fruit flavors, bright acidity and a lingering finish. This wine is tightly wound and will continue to evolve with further cellaring. The 1999 EQUUS Grenache will complement grilled meats and vegetables, braised lamb, stews, aged cheeses and provençal-style rustic foods.
