2015 Cannonau - Testa Vineyard
While the aromas lead with gentle-strawberry confections, the palate is assertive and tannic, becoming increasingly complex showing aperol, smoked game and tan leather. This magical contrast of gentle and firm is part of what makes Cannonau so seductive.
Grown across the Mediterranean, originally from Spain where it is called Garnacha, then spreading to France (Grenache) and Italy, where it is known as Cannonau.
From the Testa Vineyard planted in Calpella, Mendocino AVA. Planted in the 1940s and dry farmed by the family for 4 generations.
A small crop in 2015, producing just 8 barrels for 190 Cases
