Product Overview

Winery's Notes
"The 2018 PharaohMoans Grenache was picked from a single block in Westside Paso Robles in mid-October. The terroir is similar to the Syrah, with clay and limestone contributing exceptional freshness to the wine. To help integrate the fruit and bring some subtle texture to the wine, we fermented the juice with nearly 30% whole clusters in stainless steel tanks for three weeks. Fresh crushed strawberries exude from the glass, complemented by a smooth mouthfeel and excellent chalky texture. The Grenache will age for 10 years."

Varietal Composition: 100% Grenache
Appellation: Paso Robles AVA
Aging: 19 months in neutral French oak
Production: 200 cases
Winemaker: Guillaume Fabre

95 Points - Vinous
"Bright ruby-red. Expressive, spice-accented raspberry, boysenberry and cherry preserve aromas are complicated by building lavender and Asian spice nuances. Seamless, deep and appealing sweet, offering palate-staining red/blue fruit liqueur, spice-cake and floral pastille flavors underscored by a vein of juicy acidity. Manages to be both rich and lively and shows no excess fat. Finishes smooth and impressively long, displaying polished, even tannins and persistent florality." -JR, 12/2020

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2018 Grenache, aged 19 months in neutral oak, has a pale to medium ruby-purple color and very ripe aromas of fruitcake, candied oranges, strawberries, raspberries and powdered sugar with touches of licorice and toasted coconut. The palate is full-bodied and loaded with sweet fruits in a firm, grainy frame with great juiciness, and it finishes long and spiced. It's an über ripe example of Paso Grenache that's well made and immediately appealing. 200 cases produced." -EB, 10/30/2020
