Lightning Grenache Santa Clara County 2015

All "Besson Vineyard" fruit - 100+ year old vines on Hecker Pass between Gilroy and Santa Cruz. 30% whole cluster. 11 months in neutral oak, frequent batonnage. Nice interplay of fruit and earth: flavors of ripe cherries and candied apples are tamed by tea, soil, stony minerality and a saline note on the finish. Bright acidity gives the wine focus and velvety tannins lend the wine depth. Just 48 cases produced.
