Estate: Aonair Wines

Vineyard: Duarte Georgetown Vineyard


Tasting Note:April 16, 2016

One of our favorite Grenache slash Grenache Blends out of California. Especially because of how different it is to the usual wine made with this varietal. This blend is 88% Grenache and 12% Syrah. Deep ruby red core. Some Syrah characteristics on the nose, caramel, maple smoked bacon and bark as well as some perfume and floral notes from the Grenache. High tannins (8/10) and moderate body covered with a ton of dark fruits. Attack is so smooth leveled with a punch in the finish. Tannins carry through with long and lingering finish. Absolutely delicious and will definitely continue to purchase these wines from Grant!

Super small production (18 barrels) and absolutely a must visit estate in Napa. Can't wait to revisit in August!
