C R Graybehl Grenache Rosé 2017
The Grenache grapes for this wine were picked with the intention to make a Rosé and its expression showcases this. The true Grenache fruit comes through, with subdued hints of strawberries and cream, cranberries, fresh summer watermelon rind and orange peel. The delicate notes of rose petals and mineral are balanced by juicy berry, bright vivid acid and just a hint of tannin to create a wine that is perfect for summer days on the patio. This Rosé is made from 100% Grenache, harvest from Peter Mathis’s Vineyard in Sonoma Valley (He also makes an outstanding Rosé). The Mathis Vineyard is 7.5 acres of glorious south facing slopes with low vigor volcanic soils.
