2016 Paras Vineyard Grenache

These older vines planted in the early 90’s continue to WOW with depth and intensity, and the rocky sandstone soils give this wine a minerality and snap that is a blast to experience. South facing terraces always guarantee ripening at this vineyard, and the purity of flavor and aromatics that result are amazing. Red plum, strawberry jam, kirsch, white pepper, sage, iris and orange peel jump from the glass. The palate is dense and sappy, with a smooth, luxurious appeal, leading to an elegant and finesse-driven finish.
