Ramparts are defensive walls built to protect something of great value. In this case, the walls are glass and the treasure Grenache. But even within such confines, and with such treasure, rules can be broken. This wine began as a fun-time collaboration between Ali and grape growing pal, Damon LaLonde, who wanted to experiment with Grenache. Their goal? Take some beautiful fruit, break all the rules, and see what happens. The Grenache was left hanging in the vineyard for an extended period then co-fermented with seven percent Syrah. Why? Because it was fun. The result? So good that this wine went from an experiment to a cellar “must have” faster than a Viking breaching the ramparts of Paris. (6-bottle limit)
