Elizabeth Spencer aspires to make wines that are delicious to drink, elegant, refined and balance. This wine is a their nod to Rhone Valley. The winemaker was able to capture the freshness, juicy snap and stony vigor of Grenache.
Aged in 7 months of neutral oak and stainless steel to capture the freshness and brightness of the fruit. This wine delivers exotic aromas of ripe strawberry, spicy red currant and bing cherry in addition to a nice medium body texture. Well balanced and great partner at the table.
