We love the aromatics of Russian River Valley Grenache. While it has the classic strawberry nose, herbs and forest floor aromas combine for a fragrant bouquet. We added small amounts of Syrah and Mourvedre for weight and spice to go with the fresh and lively Grenache flavors. It was aged in neutral cooperage to preserve its natural flavors with minimal handling from harvest to bottle.
Crux is one of the few producers of Grenache in the Russian River Valley and we love the cool climate expression of this varietal.
