Abacela 2018 Grenache (Umpqua Valley)

Grenache is carving out an important role in southern Oregon. Here it shows its potency and muscle, bumping up against some alcoholic heat in pursuit of the ripest possible fruit. Dense black cherry, root beer and clean earth flavors combine, with ample acidity. The tannins are in a lighter supporting role. This wine would be great to try with anything seasoned with chipotle.
