2016 Grenache

$25.00

Tasting Notes: A refreshing treat for those who love to drink red wine year round. The nose is a rich bouquet of candied watermelon, fresh strawberry and cherry blossoms. The palate is bright and decadent with continued flavors of cranberry, candied cherries and subtle fresh herbs with a gentle flavor of bubble gum reminds us of a classic Grenache to round out the finish.
