The Cavaletti 2016 ‘The 109 Mile’ Grenache comes from the Swayze Vineyard, a warm climate, high desert site, located at 3,000 feet elevation in the northern edge of Los Angeles County - and exactly 109 miles from the winery. Adjacent to the Los Padres National Forest and nestled in the shadow of the Sierra Pelona Mountains, this under the-radar vineyard produces some spectacular Grenache. Light garnet in color, this wine offers a complex nose and full-bodied palate with layers of raspberry and cherry, followed by hints of baking spices and an intriguingly long finish.
