2015 Grenache | Steel Plow Vineyard | Sonoma Valley
From Steel Plow Vineyard in Sonoma Valley, this charming valley floor site is expertly farmed by viticulturist extraordinaire Phil Coturri and his team. Certified organic, the soils are primarily igneous volcanic rock and clay. Our rendition of Steel Plow is primarily Grenache with a small contribution of both Mourvèdre and Syrah Noir. Aged ten months in a select handful of new and older large format Burgundy style cooperage, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration. Aromatically complex, the wine is high-fidelity Grenache in presentation. Approachable now for summer enjoyment, there is a tension between come -hither notes of strawberry ganache, hard candy, and a sensational ruby color with darker savory notes, brown apple skin, and even some road tar. 116 cases produced.
