2016 Twenty-Eight Eighty Grenache
Our inaugural vintage of Rutherford Grenache was so well received, we doubled the production to a whopping 96 cases in 2016. With its perfumed red fruit lifting and revealing surprising high tone red berries and spice box, the 2016 Twenty-Eight Eighty Grenache is medium-bodied, supple, pretty and intriguing on the palate. Mixed berry compote rounds the mid palate with surprising generosity of width giving way to focus and delicacy.
WINEMAKING NOTES: 60% whole cluster fermented and aged in neutral French oak for 18 months, the process is restrained to detail the singularity of site and vintage.
