2014 Clone 513
In 2014 I decided to take the French clones that I blend into my Santa Ynez Valley Grenache and bottle them individually. The clone 513 really brings in the tannin structure of the SYV and the aromas of the lighter fruit compared to the clone 362 that brings more dark berries into it. I was very pleased with how this came out and I look forward to the next time I do this. You will notice bright aromas of cherry, cranberry, and rhubarb along with herbs de Provence, sandalwood and red licorice. Lush flavors of cherry, raspberry and cranberry with a bright core with floral, mineral, herbs de Provence and pepper finishing with bright acidity and fresh tannin. 25 cases produced.
