2015 Murmur Vineyard Grenache

36.00

Murmur vineyard is located in one of the my favorite regions of the Santa Maria Valley. Beautifully situated looking due west, this unique block of Grenache is planted in almost pure sand - Extinct sand dunes created a long time ago by strong coastal winds. This site is a perfect location for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cool climate Grenache. Year in and year out, this site always retains wonderful acidity.

The 2015 Grenache from MurmurVineyard is plush, distinguished and viscous on its moderately long textured finish. This unique vineyard site has produced a fruit forward, round wine with solid mid-palate fruit. This 100% Grenache was brought up in all neutral barrels, with notes of baked cherries, spice, and dried earthy notes on the tannic finish.
