125 year old vine Grenache Noir from a 2 acre plot in Fresno. Pressed off immediately to keep away the color. White pepper spice aroma along with some pear, yellow banana and green tea smells and flavors. A peach pit-like gentle bitterness on the finish. Interesting how the wine starts austere then broadens out when in the mouth (lees stirring every other week could explain this). Asked what I would ideally eat with this, I chose pan seared sea scallops with lemon butter sauce. A good ol’ crab feast would be excellent too.
