2018 Aviatrix Grenache
This beautiful Grenache comes from the foothills of California in El Dorado County. It is garnet in color with very enticing aromas of plums, dried herbs, earth, French Oak, and rose petals. Flavors mirror the aromatics in a wine that flows across the palate – lush, soft and juicy, with concentrated flavors of cherries and plums. Restrained tannins add structure and texture without heaviness. This reminds me of wines from the Rhone region of France. Very tasty & easy to love!
Aviatrix is a collaboration between La Sirena winemaker/owner Heidi Barrett and her two daughters, winemaker Chelsea Barrett, and sales/marketing director Remi Barrett. Aviatrix is dedicated to the intrepid women throughout the history of aviation, who surpass society's expectations and limitations to soar to new heights. We hope you enjoy this mother-daughter collaboration as much as we enjoyed making it.
