Grenache Eagle Point Ranch, 2015

Produced by Bee Hunter Wine

Grenache, one of the most famous grapes from the southern Rhone in areas like Chateauneuf du Pape, has a special place in Andy’s heart. Eschewing aromatics and balance over gobs of fruit, this wine will please Pinot Noir drinkers as well as fans of Zinfandel. Quite the straddle you say? It can be done! And it is…. Sayeth Bee Hunter.
