Red Wine /// Grenache // California / U.S.A.
Another from Pax Mahle, this is from a small parcel of Grenache situated near the ocean at altitude. The original clone for the vineyard was apparently taken from the famous Rayas vineyard in Chateauneuf (100% Grenache often considered to be the finest example of the variety). This is a remarkable and explosive wine. There were only 47 cases produced, 564 bottles. This is the ultimate boutique Californian wine. STSWine
