2017 Eos Grenache, Santa Ynez Valley
This 2017 Santa Ynez Valley Grenache is a beautiful garnet color with mouthwatering aromas of ripe red raspberry and a touch of lavender. The palate is textured and dynamic with flavors of strawberry and cassis at the forefront followed by notes of cigar box on the bright, lingering finish.

2017 was marked by its heavy rainfall, heat spikes in summer, and high-quality fruit. Winter rains replenished the soils leading up to budbreak. Temperatures throughout spring and early summer were moderate, resulting in slow even ripening. A heat spike at the end of August – early September propelled us into harvest. We began picking the fruit on August 31st through November 3rd, 2017 at optimal maturity.
