Clandestine Vineyards #1 Grenache is the first offering from the single vineyards project by Vinaceous Wines. The vines were handpicked & gently basket pressed. The juice was then added back to first pressings, open fermented, and finally aged in old French oak hogsheads to calm and round out the vintage after all that activity. 

Tasting Notes

This wine boasts a bright magenta color with the nose showing spicy red berry fruit with underlying gravelly, loamy characters. The palate is vibrant, revealing cherries and five spice, but as the wine opens in the glass these develop into darker, wild fruits which dance across the mid-palate. The finish is long with a touch of toasty, soft oak tannin.

Food Pairing

Complimenting a broad spectrum of cuisines, this wine is especially suited to duck or gamey dishes, and matches perfectly with more aromatic and spicier realms.
