From the dry grown Fireblock vineyard planted back in 1926 comes this 100% old vine Grenache. The wines purity is striking. Beautiful hightone raspberry and strawberry notes waft from the glass. Once in the mouth the flavors fill out. The fruit has a beautiful sweet note to it, with hints of spice and pepper, even hints of tobacco. Powerful and persistent all the way to the finish. Don't hold back.
