Melée Grenache Red Wine

Many years ago, Tuck Beckstoffer was traveling in Southern France and fell in love with the Grenache wines being made from the area. Tuck remembers: “Big, dark, elegant wines oozing with passion and varietal flavor...they were unmistakable. I began collecting these wines and opening them for friends as often as I could. A few years ago, I discovered a small Grenache vineyard in Central California that reminded me of the vineyards I had visited in France. The soils are comprised of huge amounts of broken shale and a touch of limestone, which is very unusual for California. The climate is ideal for Grenache — warm, if not hot, days that are countered by the cooling breezes of the Pacific at night. I tried to purchase the fruit but found that it was under contract. I waited, and I waited…Finally, I got the opportunity to purchase the fruit and now have a wine that is in bottle and ready to share with you.”
