2018 Red Wine Grenache BlendPublic Radio
The 2018 growing season in Paso Robles began under dry conditions, although at 8 inches of rain for the year, not as dry as the prior four vintages. Our yields for Genache and Syrah were slightly under average, which ensured good concentration and color density. The wines showed early appeal in the barrel, due to a very good level of ripe tannins, natural acidity and balance expressed. Rhone varities in particular from the 2018 vintage are showing excellent potential across the board, and this first release of PUBLIC RADIO is no exception.
Visually inviting with its bright garnet color, the 2018 PUBLIC RADIO shows super fresh aromas of Bing cherry, strawberry and raspberry, with very subtle hints of violet and allspice. On the palate, the wine is seamless and has perfect balance. Fresh acidity, supple tannins and red fruit flavors create a synergy that is absolutely captivating and expressive of the very best that a Grenache-based wine can possibly offer, including a very long fragrant finish.
