Tasting

The Basket Pressed Grenache shows a bright crimson color. Vintage 2018 began with good winter and early spring rainfall, preparing the vines for the summer ahead. In late spring the weather began to warm up and flowering conditions were moderate, but later than most years. The summer was extremely dry and veraison started late but came on quickly as temperatures in late January rose. The final ripening period of February and early March continued to be dry, however temperatures were mild and conditions were ideal for steady ripening and flavor development.
