We found the Grenache to be the super star of the vintage and wanted to preserve its purity and beauty, so we chose to age this blend primarily in 1 large oak Foudre (3000 Liters). This allowed the wine to retain it's energy and precision, even though it's a ripe, juicy, fruit dominated wine. Sticking with the theme of 16, pleasure balanced with intrigue and depth of purity.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Terry Hoage Vineyard is one of the most generous, expressive wines in the range this year, bursting from the glass with aromas of ripe blackberries, smoke and dark fruit preserves. On the palate, it's full-bodied, juicy and ample, with a rich core of ripe fruit balanced by succulent acids. It's a blend of 43% Grenache, 43% Syrah and 14% Mataro, which is being matured in 23% new puncheons and the balance in foudre.
