Vinous: “The 2017 Grenache Rossi Ranch is fleshy and supple, with plenty of racy fruit and floral notes that offer a good bit of freshness from the decision to bottle on the early side. The inclusion of 30% stems helps to further bring out perfume in this super-expressive Grenache.”

Winery Notes: Our one hundred percent Grenache is sourced from Rossi Ranch in the heart of Sonoma Valley. Owned by Sandy Otellini and farmed by Phil Coturri, the fine clay loam soils are perfect for growing this wondrously aromatic red grape. Laced with wild strawberry but also nuanced with wooly thyme and wet stone. Burgundian in character and winemaking, fermentation occurs in open top tanks with just enough stems to perfect elegant tannins. The soft ruby color is deceptive, there is grip and amplitude to these wines that grabs our attention.
