Public Radio Red Wine ‘Paso Robles’, Grounded Wine Co.

Referencing the radio as a medium of popular expression, we bring you the fourth wine in the Grounded Wine Co. family.  Founded on an enthusiasm for terroir, GWCo. believes in growth by evolution and revolution, as proven in this 2016 red blend from Paso Robles. Public Radio is a firm but smooth wine which expresses a bold message. The quality and personality lies in its self-awareness; sensitive to the zeigeist while acknowledging its role as part of an ongoing story. The label serves only as a visual gesture with stylistic ubiquity persuading you to open the bottle without imparting a particular opinion, instead allowing you the freedom to manifest your own ideas, regardless of frontiers.

The 2016 growing season in Paso Robles begun under dry conditions, although at 8 inches of rain for the year, not as dry as the prior four vintages. Our yields for Grenache and Syrah were slightly under average, which ensured good concentration and color density. The wines showed early appeal in the barrel, due to a very good level of ripe tannins, natural acidity, and balance expressed.

65% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 9% Petite Sirah

Tasting Notes

Bright garnet red color and fresh notes of crushed red plum, cherry, raspberry. On the palate, the wine is compellingly youthful and instantly charming, with deep resonant flavors of anise, strawberry, cherry pie, black tea leaf and cinnamon. The tannins are firm, yet veltvety smooth, as the wine builds towards a luxuriously long, very fragrant finish
