About The Wine


The Grenache 2018 is a brand-new wine, and what a debut! Jim had always wanted to produce a truly special Grenache and took time to make sure he had the perfect combination of vineyards to make it a reality. It's a full bodied, rich, and opulent elixir, offering bushels of black fruit, licorice, balsamic, pepper, herbs, and dark Chocolate, that Jeb Dunnuck called "Just about pure perfection." Jim's only regret is that production was just 300 cases.


The fruit sources for this amazing wine are Alta Mesa, Larner, and Kimsey Vineyards. The components for this blend were raised in a combination of 50% new French Barrique and Demi-Muids for 21 months before bottling without fining or filtration.


Andremily Wines Grenache 2018

  • "Just about pure perfection, the 2018 Grenache is another deep ruby/purple-hued wine from this estate that has an incredible freshness paired with richness in its ripe black fruits, white and black pepper, licorice, and spice-driven aromas and flavors. Utterly seamless on the palate, it shows the pure, elegant, lively style of the vintage yet brings incredible depth and richness. It’s world class Grenache all the way and will evolve for 10-15 years in cold cellars. The 2018 checks in as 80% Grenache, 14% Mourvèdre, and 6% Syrah that saw the standard 65% whole clusters. The élevage was 21 months in 50% new barrique and 600-liter barrels."
