With a combined 37 years in the wine business, from winemaking to estate management, this project allows vintner Shannon Staglin (also of Staglin Family Vineyard) and Federik Johansson (winemaker at Staglin Family Vineyard) to share their experience and creativity. Sourcing Grenache from the Sonoma Valley and Pinot Noir from the Petaluma Gap, this inaugural 2016 vintage Grenache celebrates the elegance and nuance of this varietal. “Effusive and spicy, the 2016 RESA Grenache is a vibrant dance of cinnamon inflected mulled strawberries and rosemary smoked plums lifted by lavender top notes. The bright flavors, supple mouthfeel and fine-grained texture deliver wonderful balance and definitive pleasure.”
