Appellation: Temecula Valley

Oak: Aged 14 months American and French, 25% new
Composition: 82% La Cresta Grenache, 16% La Cresta Syrah, 2% La Cresta Viognier
Because Temecula tends to have warmer summers, our Grenache shows more ripe fruit notes, paired nicely with a heavier toasted oak profile that brings out some delicious chocolate notes.
Typically our Grenache is blended into our Domestique blend, however, our 2019 vintage was ample and showed beautiful varietal character, so we decided to bottle some as a stand alone Grenache.
Food Pairing Ideas:
