2018 Mila Grenache Reserve
The Mila Grenache is an interesting red blend of two distinct Grenache noir grapes–West Paso Robles and Edna Valley. Spiced with a touch of cold and warm climate Syrah. The cuvee is named after one of Sofia’s beautiful daughters. The 2018 was a slow and cool ripening vintage. Grenache generally offers a medium color red with a concentrated nose of black and red cherry fruit jam, black pepper and minty spice. On the palate presents sweet black cherry balanced with dark plum skin, dark berries and delicate but rich tannins of sweet tobacco notes with a touch of pepper on the finish. Concentrated tannins and full midpalate bestow this youthful Grenache blend to be a long cellaring potential and age worthiness for over a decade.
