The soil from 60 million year old geological formation, that looks like a beach, like white beach sand, the locals nicknamed it "the beach". Old gnarly vines, tough as nails, produce incredibly rich and intense flavors of dark fruits, with velvety tannins, yet with inviting perfume of fresh roses.


"The 2005 Grenache was aged for 15-18 months in seasoned oak. It offers up a brooding perfume of garrigue, black cherry, and black raspberry. Ripe and sweet, it cuts a broad path on the palate. There is structure well-concealed under the layers of fruit, enough that this full-flavored Grenache will evolve for 3-5 years. It will drink well through 2020. The winery uses all wild ferments, 100% French oak, predominantly new for the Shiraz, and 2-3 years old for the Grenache, and the Grenache is all grown on bush vines." -Rated 91, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
