2019 Pennrose "Shake Ridge Ranch" Amador County Grenache

SKU #1556014

I first "discovered" the wines of Pennrose at the Shades of Shake Ridge event a few years back and have been a huge fan ever since. Husband and wife team Mike and Ria both have other "day jobs" in the wine business, Mike as winemaker at the inimitable Green & Red in Chiles Valley high above Napa. And Ria at McEvoy Ranch in the hills just outside of Petaluma. The Pennrose wines have wonderful purity and elegance. Never high in alcohol of extraction, these are vibrant food friendly wines with clarity and sense of place. I highly recommend checking them out if you haven't already. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Domestic Wine Buyer) Winery's Notes: "Our third vintage with Shake Ridge Grenache proved to be our best. We are so lucky to continue our collaboration with grower Ann Kraemer who manages this unique site of undulating red soils in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. With each vintage that has passed we have finely tuned our harvest decision and production techniques, while slightly improving on our decisions. We are so pleased with the rose and pear perfume of this wine, its bright and juicy texture and body, and the delicate and structured tannins that were extracted from the 50 percent inclusion of the stems and unbroken whole-cluster grape bunches. The wine is both perfectly balanced, bursting with flavor, and ready to be enjoyed on a warm spring evening."
