Wine Review: This bright red colored Grenache based blend opens with a fragrant and appealing strawberry with hints of red cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, soft and very smooth. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced strawberry with hints of faint oak, red plum, red cherry and herbal tea. The finish is dry and its refined tannins are soft, but make their presence know. I would pair this very good wine with German Hunter’s veal schnitzel with a mushroom sauce topped with bacon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Powerfully Grenache on the nose: red cherry, wild strawberry, and star anise, with the Syrah providing a little tobacco-like herby savoriness that keeps the nose from coming off confected. The mouth is deep and flavorful, with flavors of black cherry, pepper spice, and milk chocolate. Nice powdery Grenache tannins come out on the finish, leaving an impression of pithy cherry skin and wild herbs. Drink now and over the next decade.
