Farming Grenache in the cool climate of Edna Valley can be a gamble. Late season frosts and unfavorable weather can harm the clusters by the time they are ready to harvest in late October. But in more temperate years like 2018, we are rewarded with a fantastic expression of cool-climate Grenache. Aged 18 months in a large wooden cask, this wine has Jespersen Ranch’s signature white pepper flavor, wide drying tannins and naturally high acidity.
