Bitch Tongue 2008 Grenache

Like taking a turn on the deck under a star-filled sky, our Bitch Tongue 2008 Grenache is graceful, smooth and decidedly lithe in body, with sinuous flavors of raspberries and cherries and a light spicy finish. Memories are made of this.

 

TECH NOTES: Our grapes come from Sea Shell Vineyards, nestled on the banks of the Huero Huero Creek just three miles east of Paso Robles, California. The vineyard has a unique microclimate and extraordinary soil composition, combined with warm days and cool nights which contribute to our wine's character. Hand picked and cool fermented. Barrel aged in 20% new French oak.
