Our 2021 Cavern Select Grenache has notes of black cherries, cinnamon, and dried herbs. Flavors of raspberry preserves, leather, and clove on the full mid-palate with fine grained tannins and a lingering finish.
Grenache from the Willow Creek district is always magical. The vineyard’s calcareous soils and site stress create one-of-a-kind wines. Aged in French oak puncheons (50% new) for 16 months.
The 2021 vintage began with a cool start. We saw above average rainfall in Paso Robles helping to cleanse soils. The cool weather protracted bud break and bloom delaying our growing season. The weather became more seasonal until several frost events in late September and October created challenges for low elevation areas. Luckily, we saw very little frost damage in our vineyards this season. Overall yield in the vineyard is lower than average. While short and somewhat sporadic, vintage 2021 is showing to be rich in flavor and phenolically dense.
