2016 Limited Release Grenache
Held up to the light, this wine illuminates an opaque and yet semi-translucent ruby color. Scents of chocolate, cherries and baked berry pie waft from the glass. It’s impossible not to want to get more up close and personal with this wine.
A slight leather flavor mixed within tobacco and earth notes makes itself known up front and in the cheeks. In the middle of the palate, there is distinct cacao power and a sultry dark chocolate nib taste mixed with delicate floral notes that envelops the senses.
This Grenache pairs best with a juicy prime rib, a side of steamed artichoke with warm butter, some boneless spare ribs, or a pasta with a rich white sauce. This wine matures beautifully with age, so store some bottles for your cellar and a few for enjoying for now.
