Tasting Notes

A decadent Grenache-forward blend that screams, “Drink Me!” Rich, ripe, and fragrantly hypnotic, the wine lures you into a trance as you discover that ah ha! Moment. Black cherries, ripe raspberries, cinnamon and cocoa fill the olfactory senses as the wine slowly and seductively wraps around your tongue. It’s not a dream, this wine is that good! Sticks and Stones represents the best Grenache that we farm here at Linne Calodo. A quest to let our Willow Creek District fruit express its true colors. Drink now through 2027, but I suggest drinking it sooner than later when it is this good. 74% Grenache, 19% Syrah, 7% Mourvèdre
