Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Grenache opens with fragrant blueberry and cherry bouquet with hints of menthol. On the palate, this wine is a real fruit bomb. It is medium bodied, fruit forward and juicy. The flavor profile is an extracted red raspberry with notes of minerality. I also detected hints of strawberry, blueberry and a touch of vanilla oak in the end. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins and fruit stick around for quite a while. This big wine would pair well with a juicy Swiss burger smothered with sauteed mushrooms. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A highly complex, intense beauty, with cherry and plums giving way to hints of licorice, dried spring flowers, cocoa and cinnamon spice. The palate is driven and concentrated, with fine sandy mineral tannins.

Organic status: not organic
