2014 Grenache

Tasting Notes

The 2014 Kamen Grenache (100% Grenache) was de-stemmed and co-fermented with sun-dried Grenache stems. We believe this proprietary practice adds both aromatic and textural layers. The result is a sensual wine with extremely expressive and pure aromatics.

Like a Ruby gemstone, this Grenache sparkles in the glass. Ethereal aromatics of wild raspberries, strawberry compote, dried rose petals, anise, minerals and meringue abound. Black pepper, cola, stone fruit peel and brambly mountain berries add further complexity. The decadent and juicy palate explodes with flavor! Candied black cherries, the ripest of strawberries and crème de cassis. Seamlessly balanced, this wine exemplifies the purity, power and grace that can be found in world-class Grenache. A stunner now, this wine will cellar well over the next 15 years.
