“2015 Grenache Palisades Vineyard Old Vine offers a deeper ruby color to go with classic Grenache black raspberry and mulberry fruits, dried herbes de Provence, ground pepper, and orange blossom. It builds with time in the glass, is medium to full-bodied, has tons of sweet fruit, and terrific purity. It’s another fruit-forward, balanced, incredibly high-quality wine from this estate.” - Jeb Dunnuck
The last vintage available for the Palisades Grenache and we snapped it up. This is a solid crowd pleaser, and at this price you can grab a case for daily or weekly drinking. With such decadent fruit, you will be the hero of your next BBQ with corks popped open on this bottle!

Proprietor Tor Kenward and his winemaking team, led by Jeff Ames, have been crafting world-class wines at this eponymous estate from its inception. Tor’s 30+ years in the Napa wine business have afforded him relationships with the sort of growers who have lines behind golden velvet ropes begging for their grapes. It pays to know where the valley’s greatest terroirs are in the Napa Valley. Robert Mondavi sited his winery smack in the middle of To Kalon because he, father Cesare, and brother Peter all knew how great the grapes were for Charles Krug in the 1950s. Starting in the 1970s, Andy Beckstoffer began studying and acquiring the finest terroirs in the valley, and strongly advocating for vineyard designation. And of course Tor Kenward, as an executive for Beringer, knew which sites were the most powerful contributors to Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet. Tor has an insider’s knowledge and a rolodex that newcomers simply can’t buy. This is why the wines of TOR are so important to us, and why they demand your attention.
