Winemaker's Tasting Notes

Light in color, you’ll find notes of lavender and opulent ripe strawberry flavors, with some dried cranberry on the finish. Acidity is balanced, yet present, to provide structure and make this the perfect go to food wine for a variety of fare.
Food Pairing Suggestions
Allow this wine to breathe before tasting and serve slightly chilled, at about 60ºF. When pairing with food, this Grenache will work well with seasonal Fall dishes, including roasted and slow-cooked meats, hearty stews, chili, and vegetable dishes. Experiment with spicy ethnic foods. Consider Grenache with smoked gouda, Manchego and brie cheeses.

Winemaker

Jon Phillips

About the Winemaker

After teaching wine education for 15 years and learning the ropes at a winery in college, Jon began experimenting in his garage in 1999. Intrigued by the famed regions of Burgundy and the Côtes du Rhône, he produces and sells a boutique portfolio of wine (only 2,000 cases a year!) under his own “Inspiration Vineyards” label.
About the Winery
Inspiration Vineyards
Born from a dream and a mid-life career change, Inspiration Vineyards was created in 2002. Jon Phillips' passion for wine, however, dates back much further to his grandparents who made wine in the early 1900's. For years, Jon was determined to break into the wine business by working weekends in tasting rooms, teaching wine classes and ultimately enrolling in a class at UC Davis in Enology and Viticulture. Shortly thereafter Jon made his first barrel of wine, a Zinfandel.
