2018 Acceleration

85% Grenache ~ 15% Syrah

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

The fifth vintage of Acceleration is dominated by the balanced power and aromatics of our Paso Robles Grenache.  On the nose, you'll find pleasant purple flowers, minerality, and luscious black raspberries.  Its a silky friend for an evening in and also well structured to be versatile pairing for many dishes ranging from roasted and grilled meats to delicate pork tenderloin.  Drink it up now, or lay some down for some serious aging potential.  This pre-release is currently first only available for our loyal Ambassador Wine Club members.  There's only 55 cases produced of this gem.

Drink now through 2029

"...The 2018 Acceleration is more Grenache-dominated yet still includes 15% Syrah. It was 85% destemmed and brought up in just 20% new French oak. Black raspberries, ground pepper, dried flowers, and a touch of dried earth and rock minerality all emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied and beautifully balanced, has silky tannins, and a great finish. It's another seriously good wine from this estate that can be drunk today or cellared for 7-8 years" 94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck, September 2020
