WINE CLUB RELEASE

Found in the heart of the Arroyo Seco, the Griva Vineyard is found in the region’s ancient riverbed channel and the property itself is bisected by the seasonal creek. The topsoil is sandy and the subsoil in much of the terrain is impenetrable with hard-pan lens found only a few feet below the surface. Add to those low yielding conditions, the large granite and shale river rocks that litter the surface as well as howling wind and foggy mornings and one has an ideal location for the cultivation of distinct grapes.

A combination of four clones; both “Dijon” clones 667 & 777 as well as classic clones Pommard (4) & Martini (13) were combined and aged for 11 months in French oak. Ultimately a selection of ten distinct barrels were selected for this bottling. Dark crimson in color, the bouquet features rustic notes of wild raspberry, cherry cola, violets, sagebrush and crushed stones in the bouquet. On the palate the flavors carry through and the texture is elegantly balanced between supple tannins and bright acidity.
