Tasting Note: A Lodi, California take on this Southern Rhône grape varietal that captures tart red fruit.

Deep-intensity ruby in color this wine has an aromatic nose of raspberry, violet and ripe black cherry with light notes of cinnamon baking spice.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied grenache shows tart, red fruit, including under ripe red currant.

Based on the wine’s deep color, you’ll be surprised at the wine’s light-to-medium body.

The, wine is medium in acidity with tartness running throughout the entire length of the taste through to a medium-plus finish.

This wine would be a perfect accompaniment to white-meat dishes and could also be a summer go-to red.

Bottle Note: Suncé is an artisan winery located in the Russian River Valley appellation of Sonoma County, specializing in vineyard-designated varietal wines and classic blends. “To find eternity in a grain of sand or a drop of wine.” Only 3 barrels made.
