Tuck Beckstoffer Wines

“Melee” Grenache

California

 

Tuck Beckstoffer "Melee" GrenacheMany years ago, winemaker Tuck Beckstoffer was traveling in southern France and fell in love with the Grenache wines being made from the area. Big, dark, elegant wines oozing with passion and varietal flavor.

After years of searching, he discovered a small Grenache vineyard in Central California that reminded of the vineyards in France. The soils have large deposits of broken shale and a touch of limestone (very unusual for California), and the climate is ideal for Grenache – warm to hot days countered by the cooling night breezes of the Pacific.

The wine is rich and multilayered, with boysenberry and crushed strawberry on the nose. The palate is more boysenberry and fresh plum, followed by classic Provence herb notes and a soft, plush finish of anise and currant.

This wine was aged sur lie in French oak for 18 months. Bottled unfined, it’s tasting delicious now, but will continue to mature for the next 8 - 10 years.
