A deep red, nearly opaque, hue of garnet fills the sides of the glass. Stunning aromas of succulent dark fruits and ripe cherry are neatly framed by soft French oak. The wine has an amazingly pure entry which instantly coats the entire front of the mouth and leads into a soft mid-palate with refined acid and great structure. Mature tannins round out a long finish that last nearly half a minute.

Shatter, 100% Grenache from the small town of Maury in France s Roussillon region, is named for a phenomenon in which grape clusters fail to develop all their berries after flowering. While this condition called coulure in French is usually considered a viticultural hazard, Gott and Phinney boldly embraced it as the name for their new project. As Phinney explains, This area of the Roussillon is very prone to shatter. It actually decreases yield and intensifi es the wines. Shatter is the newest edition to the Trinchero Family Estates growing portfolio of wines.
