Grenache, "Rawley Park" 2011

Raw Power

Our favorite punk rocker turned winemaker let a bit out about his 'former self' a few years back. Prior to the punk scene, Rawley was a motocross champ and likened it to winemaking. Let the accelerator out and showcase the purity and lushness of Grenache. This is a wine of one purposeĀ‰... to drink!

Reviews

  • "88 points. Vibrant, expressive and appealing, with blueberry and spice flavors that ride easily over refined tannins and finish with an open texture. Drink now through 2016. 900 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
  • "88 points. Bright ruby-red. Exotic, spice-accented aromas of red berries and incense. Fleshy and smooth in texture, with slightly warm raspberry and cherry flavors and a hint of sassafras. Supple and sweet on a finish that features gentle tannins and a touch of jamminess." (International Wine Cellar)
