Winemaker Notes: “The 2019 Scarlett Grenache was our first vintage for this varietal planted from our estate Rutherford vineyard. The vines are head trained in the style that is popular in southern France’s Rhone valley and receive minimal irrigation so it can thrive in the deep rocky soils. The color is true to Grenache with its light ruby hues that extend to a slightly pink rim as it hits the side of the glass. Amazingly intense and fresh aromatics of fresh strawberries, kirsch, Bing cherries and orange rind soar from the glass. The mid palate is perfectly balanced with massive amounts of light and dark red fruits, followed with a full-bodied and buoyant mouthfeel that hovers across the spectrum of the palate. On the palate, you find a rare combination of freshness, sensual textures and an ocean of perfectly ripe sweet red fruits that express a gorgeous sense of purity in a long, seamless, silky, and creamy finish. Age this beauty for 4-6 years which will bring out even more complexity and secondary components. Only 190 cases were produced

FMW 96 Points: This inaugural release is a real beauty. From the get go offering up gorgeous notes of red fruits, herbes de Provence, loamy earth. The wine is Medium-to-full-bodied. Laced with stellar and well-balanced fruit throughout the rich palate. This youngest has fine-grained, silkty tannins, that lead to a pleasant and long finish. The wine is powerful yet elegant, and will benefit from a year in the cellar, and should age nicely for a good decade. VERY LIMITED
