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.
This first vintage of s i r s e e was made available by donation and raised over $5K for select social justice organizations. It is now sold out. Please look for future production.
