The fruit for this Grenache was harvested on Labor Day 2015 from a family-owned vineyard in Plymouth, a small town in the Shenandoah Valley region of the Sierra Foothills, California. The soil is red clay, indicating high iron content. The sun is strong, ripening the fruit quickly. The resulting wine is a brilliant ruby color with notes of candied cranberry and cinnamon.
"Wow, it's actually really good," say friends, who admittedly could just be acting polite. Wine colleagues have openly complimented the stuff, but I'm too shy to ask for reviews. And anyway, it doesn't matter what they think--it matters what you think. Try it yourself.
This first vintage of s i r s e e has been made available by donation to select charities. To date, the wine has raised over $4K combined for select social justice organizations. The remaining few cases are being used to benefit Undocufund, an organization that supports undocumented immigrants affected by the recent North Bay wildfires. Our goal is to raise $2000 before Christmas. Can we do it?
Of course we can. Get your bottle today!
