“I like this..”
Blood orange, pink peppercorns, snaps like a 12-6 curveball on the tongue. Pomegranate and cranberries.
"The Luc’s Grenache is a deep ruby/garnet color with hints of magenta and richly flavored with classic varietal sex appeal, it shows fresh black raspberry, briery boysenberry, plum, pomegranate, and sweet strawberry fruits, as well as exciting spiciness with a mix of cinnamon, dried lavender and peppercorns as well as some whole cluster pop and a touch of lingering florals and anise." - Grapelive
About The Vineyard:
Luc’s Vineyard is planted on a west-facing hillside on volcanic soils. To the best of my knowledge, this is the only Graciano being grown in this part of Sonoma County, and as there are only about 30 acres total in the State it is a rare creature indeed. The single acre vineyard is on a bi-lateral cordon trellis and tends to produce around 2.5 tons total. Split between Graciano, Grenache, Tempranillo, and Syrah. It was planted in 2010 and has been organically farmed since day one.
