The La Paciencia Vineyard was planted over the course of three years, to Grenache, Syrah and Tempranillo, three acres each. The 2015 Grenache from this vineyard is truly one of a kind, and one of Washingtons top bottlings. This incredible wine was aged in a combination of neutral oak and stainless steel prior to bottling. The nose is completely intoxicating with exotic aromatics of blood orange, wild strawberries, barn floor, guava purée, forest floor and black tea. The palate shows an incredible range of flavors, which include blood orange zest, forest floor, white truffle, red currant jelly and umami. The wonderful combination of saline and savory characteristics makes your mouth water and completely captivates the senses. Despite coming from a warm vintage, the level of acidity that vigneronne, Elizabeth Bourcier, was able to capture is highly impressive. This is a total beauty, and while its early appeal makes this nearly impossible to resist now, it also shows incredible promise for a wonderful future ahead.
