G2 Vineyard Grenache Blanc
A dry wine that carries a strong citrus profile while flirting with tropical and stone fruits aromas. The mouthfeel is medium-full and boasts a lush, vibrant undertone of acid that essentially dances on the palate. The cool combination of fruit, minerality, and acid provide great structure to this wine. It finishes clean with purity, and verve. A great wine to pair with grilled white fish or soft cheeses, or simply enjoy poolside on its own.
Nose: Citrus zest, honeysuckle, ripe apricot, brioche, flint
Palate: Lemon, lime, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon curd, pear, saline

The finish is carried with intensity and fine grained, almost silky tannin. There’s an intensity on this wine that lifts the finish, creating long evolving flavors that continue lingering after you swallow.

Some consumers prefer their wines fruit forward, bold and robust, while others tend to favor rustic wines of character, complexity, and nuance. We created this vintage chart to let you know when our wines reach their optimal drinking window - or the median between the two extremities.
If you prefer your wine young and structured, the Drink/Hold window may be your preference. If you favor wines with secondary aromatics and flavors, that pair well with food, the Drink Now window may be the beginning of a favorable period for you. The Drink window of our vintage chart is when we enjoy our wines. We recommend letting our wines open in your glass during this window which should continue to evolve after every 30 minutes of air.
A word to the wise..
Our palates vary on occasion but more often than not we find ourselves decanting wines nine times out of 10. We feel wines are more expressive with a bit of air in their first seven years of life, but not all wines are created equal. In this case, a general rule of thumb for us is to taste right after opening to get a gauge on the wines youth, then decant for 30 minutes, pour about four ounces in a glass, sip and let the wine open in the glass while the remainder of the wine in the decanter continues to breathe and evolve.
