Leo Steen Grenache "Provisor Vineyard" '17

Located in the famed Lytton Springs District of Dry Creek Valley, Provisor Vineyard’s prized red rock soils are planted to Tablas Creek Clone D Grenache. Provisor offers warm, dry conditions that encourage Grenache to achieve beautifully, balanced ripeness, while preserving wonderful natural acidity and tannins.

This wine was fermented as whole clusters using the traditional pigeage method, with 20% undergoing carbonic maceration to highlight the Grenache's bright, sweet fruit notes all the while maintaining Grenache's rustic tannic structure. It was then aged for 10 months in neutral 500-liter French oak casks.

The wine is robust in flavor, alluding to ripe cherry and wild strawberries with cloying hints of Kirsch, but finessed and elegant. On the palate, the lush, juicy fruit mingles with hints of lavender, eucalyptus and freshly cracked black pepper. Round, sweet tannis underscore a lingering finish with flavors of dried flowers and homemade strawberry jam.

The Grenache is currently only one of two red wines that Leo makes. Absolutely exceptional. This wine is both fun and highly enjoyable, but well equipped for aging. Its combination of vibrancy and rustic qualities make for an incredible food wine. Game, stews, cassoulet - this is a great pairing for brightening up any traditional, rustic dish.
