Sandler's annual half ton of Boer Grenache is the most conisistent block of grapes we receive. It doesn't seem to matter if it's a hot or cold year, a wet or dry vintage, Boer Grenache never seems to waver. The Chalone appellation combined with Richard Boer's excellent farming translate into a gorgeous Grenache each harvest season.
The 2018 is drinking well right out of the gate, with inviting aromas of ripe, Southern Rhône fruit, spicy stems, and the wild chaparral of Chalone. Enjoy this from 2020 through 2030.
