Newfound Wines “Gravels” Grenache California 2018
The fruit for this bottling of Grenache comes predominately from Cemetery Vineyard, with remaining amounts from Scaggs Vineyard and Yount Mill Vineyard. Foot trodden, indigenous fermentation and roughly 35 days on skins before 12 months of barrel aging. Flavors of red cherry, raspberry, savory herbs, roses/violets, red plum, and a touch of cedar. The palate is linear and assertive with distinct tannin yet elegant framework.
