Muddled strawberry, black cherry and red currants meld with dulce de leche and potpourri.

Tasting notes

Muddled strawberry, black cherry and red currants meld with dulce de leche and potpourri. Swirling adds a note of dried berries and black tea. The palate has a pixelated texture with dried fruits, dark spices and a persistent but not overwhelming tannin.

Production notes

Fermented in all stainless steel and aged in once used French oak 500l’s for 22 months. This was made exclusively from the Tablas Creek clone a lighter colored but more perfumed clone of Grenache than our other clone 3. Planted at our Corfu Vineyard at around 1,400ft on a mixture of very fine sandy loam and silt this wine is getting more and more aromatic and energetic as the vineyard gets older with its ability to hold onto its acids longer while still keeping relatively low alcohols for new world Grenache. This will be the last year we produce a pure Grenache as we’re bringing back the Reverence blend that will focus on Grenache with some Mourvedre and Syrah dosed in.

This wine is produced Vegan.

Gård Vintners is 100% estate grown sustainably at Lawrence Vineyards in the Royal Slope AVA. Lawrence Vineyards features seven distinct vineyard sites with elevations ranging 930 feet to 1,675 feet. The combination of elevation and south-facing slope provides a great framework for grape production, while the diversity of the seven locations delivers a high level of complexity to Gård wines. Lawrence Vineyards is certified sustainable by Vinewise.org.

Winemaker Aryn Morell, a Washington native, honed his skills in Napa Valley working with some of the country’s most notable producers, including Silver Oak, Joseph Phelps, Quintessa, Husic, Chimney Rock, Chappellet, Stags Leap and countless others in winemaking and the chemical engineering of wine as part of a consulting company for which he worked.

Aryn joined the Gard team as head winemaker in 2011, and spends considerable time in the winery’s estate vineyard with Josh Lawrence, Gard founder and viticulturist.  With an uncompromising attention to detail, Aryn carefully crafts Gard wines with an eye toward the unique expression of terroir of the estate vineyard, and earns frequent accolades and high acclaim for his wines.

In 2014, Aryn and Gard founders Josh and Lisa Lawrence launched a winemaking facility in Walla Walla, M&L Production, where all the Gård wines are produced, bottled and aged. Aryn also makes wine for Matthews Estate, Tenor, Alleromb and Mullan Road, a Washington project for Cakebread Cellars of California.
