Date Tasted: October 24th, 2016
Tasting Notes: The Grenache returns to the Stag's Hollow portfolio as a "regular" varietal release for 2015 after the benchmark 2014 was elevated to the winery's Renaissance, reserve-tier. The new edition is reminiscent of the 2013 vintage with a familiar, incense-berry-spice profile on the robust nose and the tangy, smooth tannin palate. 13% Syrah is blended for some added structure and depth. The balance is superb with a nice kick of fresh berry acidity, helping the rich, rounded mouth feel finish long, yet fresh. Open in early 2017. Drink 2017-2019.
