2021 kän-krēt GRENACHE
100% Grenache Aged in Concrete Tank

2021 kän-krēt GRENACHE

Wine Critic Jeb Dunnuck says, "Tasted out of bottle and all varietal, the 2021 Grenache Kän-kret has a great nose of kirsch liqueur, dried herbs, pepper, and sandalwood that carries to a medium to full-bodied, round, layered style on the palate. It's a Châteauneuf du Pape look-alike that can be drunk with ample pleasure today yet has the structure to benefit from a year or three of bottle age and evolve for a decade." 94 pts.

Wine Critic Eric Guido says, "The 2021 Kän-Krēt Grenache is darkly inviting, opening with a flourish of savory herbs and spice that gives way to dried strawberries. This silky-smooth, nearly opulent in feel, balanced by a salty burst of minerality that gives way to ripe wild berries. The 2021 finishes gently tannic and with admirable length, leaving a chewy concentration of black raspberry to slowly fade. There's so much power and complexity here, but it will take years to reveal its hidden charms.92-Points

Wine Critic Owen Bargreen says, "This 2021 edition was aged entirely in concrete tanks and utilizes Grenache clonal selection 362. Deep and concentrated on the palate, this shows Mandarin orange rind flavors that mingle well with ripe strawberry, red currants, and shades of stony soils. Very juicy and delicious, this is already beautifully evolved stuff that will live on for at least another ten years. Drink 2023-2033" 94 pts.

The epitome of Grenache grown in the Paso Robles Willow Creek District was captured perfectly with this wine. The concrete aging vessel this wine was brought up in helps to showcase its pretty side alongside the mineral driven characters. Bright pops of pepper-laden spiced maraschino cherries, pomegranate, and dried rose petals. The palate showcases our chalky, calcareous, limestone soils and finishes with great length and lively acidity. Pair with grilled octopus and chorizo, roasted quail, or your favorite paella.
