The suddenly popular Grenache Blanc from the Paragon Vineyard in Edna Valley was planted in 2005. The cooling influences of the Pacific Ocean (only 5.4 miles away) provide one of the longest growing seasons in the state along with extended hang time that favors this evolving varietal. It is also is widely planted in France’s Rhône Valley and throughout Spain’s wine regions. Aromas of apricot, orange peel, apple and stone fruit follow through to the palate blending with lush peach flavors and a note of white pepper. Citrusy grapefruit lingers on the finish which is clean and crisp.
