Pax Grenache The Vicar 2018


no added sulfur

Country: USA

Region: California

Type: Red Wine

Grape: Grenache/Mourvedre

Based on the classic blend of Grenache and Mouvedre, these two grape varieties have been blended together for their compatability for centuries. The earthy, animal, rustic flavors of Mourvedre and the intensely fruited Grenache go together naturally. This wine is 50% Alder Springs Vineyard Grenache and 50% Bedrock Vineyard Ancient Vine Mourvedre. Whole-cluster fermentation. Very old neutral Puncheons and concrete keep the wine focused and lively without imparting any wood aromas or flavors.

Wild aromas of alpine strawberries, salumi, red raspberry preserves, forest floor and tiny red currants. The palate is medium-full bodied, bright but supple, with clean berry fruit and an exotic wildness to the wine that balances out the big strawberry and red-raspberry preserve flavors.
