This is the first varietal Grenache from Bunnell Family, with grapes from Boushey and Olsen vineyards. It's rare enough to find Washington Grenache, as the grape was essentially wiped out in the mid-1990s. All neutral oak, so what comes out are the lovely, spicy, grape and berry flavors of Grenache, with snappy acids and early hints of Provençal herbs and toast.
