"The 2018 Grenache Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard is bright, perfumed and easy to enjoy. Medium in body, with good varietal character, the 2018 has plenty to offer. Crushed raspberry, dried flowers, mint and blood orange develop as this effortless, pliant Grenache shows off its considerable charms." (VM)

 

"The 2018 Grenache Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard (80% Grenache and 20% Syrah) also has a spicy, complex style. Notes of black cherries, mulberries, cedary herbs, and peppered meats all emerge from the glass, and it's medium-bodied, with a rounded, elegant texture and a good finish. It's going to keep for 4-6 years with no issues." (JD)

Winery Notes:
Cool climate Grenache when grown, harvested, and hand crafted for balance, produces a layered, complex wine of intrigue. This aromatic, deeply colored red is multi-dimensional, intense yet elegant, with a purity of fruit, and brilliant cherry red clarity. It is enjoyable now with its lively fruit and is well match with a honey glazed ham or lamb roast. But a few years bottle age will bring bliss.
