Aromas include bramble, white pepper and baking spices. Subtle tannins are just elevated to make the wine pair well with a wide variety of foods, from a light salmon and vegetable grill, to a savory lamb stew.

Copious Spring rains led to healthy growth and near perfect vine balance in 2019. The absence of extreme heat events allowed for extended hang time and optimal maturity without loss of acidity.

Harvests for the Grenache cuvees were on September 24th and 25th, and included small amounts of the interplanted varieties, Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet and Carignane. The fruit was destemmed, then left uncrushed to maximize fruit expression while holding tannins in check. Fermentation was in 5-ton open top tanks using native, grape born yeast and 2 to 3 gentle pump-overs per day. Pressed at dryness after a 12-day ferment, the wine was aged in 60-gallon neutral French oak barrels for 19 months prior to bottling.

The 2019 Grenache drinks superbly at release, with a finesse, concentration and balance that make it one of my all time favorite releases. The acidity and structure should allow it to age gracefully for years to come.

Mathis Vineyard covers a 7.5 acre plot, situated in the hills above the town of Sonoma, on a warm, south-facing slope.  The soils are volcanic in origin, low vigor, with underlying rhyolitic rock.  The nearby San Francisco Bay, visible from the vineyard, provides a cooling influence and allows for extended hang time at harvest.
