18 Colibri Grenache
91% Grenache, 9% Syrah
Colibri Vineyards, located in the east-west running Whitetail Canyon in the Chiricahua Mountains, is as stunning as its wines are interesting. Remote and beautiful, Colibri sits in a wild and ancient volcanic landscape. Its lean, granitic soils and the relatively cool climate (the vineyard sits at 5300+’) produce wines that are well structured and have a marked peppery spice to them. This wine was crafted mainly from the East Block (the biggest block at Colibri) with a small addition of Colibri Syrah which lends weight and texture. This soft, luxurious wine is loaded with ripe, wild-red fruits along with nuances of bergamot, fall leaves, and a wonderful, brambly spice. Absolutely delicious!
