Wine Review: This dark red colored Grenache from Anarchy was well-received by the Tasting Panel. It opens with a fragrant cinnamon and dried plum bouquet with a hint of clove and leather. On the palate. This wine is medium bodied, is slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a spicy stewed red plum and black pepper blend with notes of oak and black olive. We also picked up some hints of black tea and black cherry in the background. The finish is dry and its moderate soft tannins are nicely prolonged. The Panel thought this would pair nicely with a variety of foods. Colorado rack of lamb, burnt ends and smoked brisket were all suggested. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: On the Nose: Bright Violet and dusty Lavender, with red & black berry fruit with hints of black pepper. On the Palate: Black stone fruit turning bright with heady tones of Provincial herb, black cherry and fig laced with anise, pepper and spice. The palate is alive with bright acidity that marries well to the fruit. The finish is long with soft tannins that trail into a lingering oak finish…… in summation: Graceful with an attitude. I recommend with a classic French Cassoulet or Provencal Beef Stew with crusty country bread. It also goes great with Charcuterie and hard cheese.
