Dashe 'Les Enfants Terribles' Grenache 2016

 
Item Sold Out
"Because of this balancing act, grenache is often blended with other grapes. They can add tannins, acidity and other characteristics that grenache lacks. But not always. Château Rayas, the great Châteauneuf that has become one of the world’s most coveted wines, is made entirely of grenache. For that reason I recommend Dashe.

"Color: Brick red. Aromas:Red raspberry, strawberry, pomegranate, spice, minerals. Taste: Beautiful velvety texture. Entry of intense strawberry, raspberry, and pomegranate fruit with hints of black currants. Beautiful floral elements of lavender and violets, slightly grainy tannins, long sweet finish of red fruit, minerals, and peppery spice.
The Wine
This is an exceptional vineyard in Dry Creek: a rugged, rocky, dry riverbed just north of Healdsburg. The fog that flows down the valley at night chills down the vines, keeping the grapes cool and resulting in a wine that offers bright, vibrant fruit and great acidity.

The Winery
In 1996, the husband and wife winemaking team of Michael and Anne Dashe founded Dashe Cellars. Focused on crafting exceptional single-vineyard wines, Dashe Cellars blends the two winemaker’s combined 40-plus years of experience at such noted wineries as Château Lafite-Rothschild, Château La Dominique, Ridge Vineyards, Cloudy Bay, Far Niente, Chappellet, and Schramsberg Wine Cellars. Drawing on this wealth of experience, the Dashes create vineyard-focused wines that capture the complexity and character of top vineyards throughout Sonoma County and beyond.

At Dashe Cellars, Michael and Anne are committed to creating wines that reflect the unique soil, climate and regional characteristics of world-class vineyards. Focusing on older vines, steep hillside locations, rocky soils and stressful growing conditions, they work closely with their growers to ensure careful vineyard management and low yields. Building on the gentle, authentic winemaking approach that has helped to define Dashe Cellars. Since its inception, Michael and Anne extended the boundaries of their natural winemaking philosophies with the creation of their first Les Enfants Terribles wine in 2007. Wines in the acclaimed Les Enfants Terribles series are made from special vineyards—often organic, biodynamic, or sustainably farmed—and are created in a more classic “Old World” style, spotlighting the delicacy that comes from cooler climates, lower alcohols, the judicious use of oak, and minimal handling." ~ Winery notes
