Tasting notes

Ah, sweet madness. Wonderland Grenache is kinda crazy: three very different blocks in three very different vineyards, all fermented with a third whole cluster, which deliver ripe aromas and flavors of anise, black olive tapenade, citrus, zest raspberry, mushroom and cinnamon. So good now and poised for even more insanely delicious complexity to open over time.

Food pairing: Barbecue, which is a noun, or wild mushroom cassoulet

Movie pairing: Alice in Wonderland, duh


FOUNDERS’ NOTES
Wonderland was first produced in 2010 as a wine club only limited release andwas named at our family dinner table during a period when the girls were both part of a theatre production of Alice in Wonderland. Seemed just right.
