2020 Grenache

Our ancient volcanic soils combined with the 2020 vintage’s mild September kept our fruit and the resulting wines perfectly balanced. This Grenache displays our site’s typical ripe Ranier cherry, smashed black raspberry, and lavender aromatics along with earthy lilac blossoms, juniper, and black pepper. The co-fermentation with Syrah gives the wine density and seamlessness on the flavorful palate, which maintains a sense of restraint along with captivating purity of fruit. This is both more elegant and intense than the delicacy implies. We love placing this wine on the table with a variety of dishes, but one of our favorites is beef carpaccio with capers, parmesan chunks, and arugula tossed in EVOO, lemon juice, and fresh cracked black pepper.

Cases Produced85 95 points; “Brilliant, medium ruby color. The aromatics are intense, offering scents of red cherry and wild berries with supporting notes of violet, forest floor, and hibiscus flower. The palate echoes the nose delivering a red and black fruits-driven core with flavors of slate, red plum, raspberry, and hints of five spice. The finish is long and lingering with ripe tannins. Full-bodied and perfectly balanced with a silky texture.” – Sean Ludford

Although part of the Rogue Valley, the 2Hawk Estate Vineyard lies in the area known locally as the Bear Creek sub-basin, which is the Rogue’s largest tributary. Beneath our vineyard soils lies a two-layered bedrock consisting of a volcanic layer, known as the Roxy Formation, and a deeper, softer layer of alluvial sandstone known as The Payne Cliffs Formation. As the Klamath Mountains began to uplift roughly 20 million years ago our bedrocks began a long erosion process that resulted in the predominately volcanic soils we find in our estate vineyard, which are unique to the Rogue Valley AVA. 2Hawk is also distinguished by a large amount of cobbled river rock, especially in our eastern section, and a somewhat sandy streak of significantly younger colluvial deposit that runs through the center of our site. Overall, we have some of the oldest soils in the valley. They are generally characterized as relatively shallow silty- to clayey-loams that are moderately well drained with moderate to rapid runoff.
