Description
 
There is something so inherently enjoyable about the 2010 Sawyer Vineyard Grenache. It has all those characteristics of Grenache that we love: medium-bodied, juicy and textured, loads of fruit and suave tannins. Looking back, 2010 was a cool, nerve-wracking harvest, in fact the coldest summer in California in fifty years. With high inherent acidity from the cool weather, we waited for flavors to come through in the vineyard before picking on October 22. With very small berries and clusters, we carefully added a small percentage of stems for 19 days on the skins. We then transferred to seasoned French cooperage for twenty months before bottling.  The idea was that the ripe fruit and high acidity in time would find commonality, each one complimenting the other. Time on the cork has confirmed this, and we are very excited about the present and future of this vintage.
