Wine Review: This slightly opaque ruby colored Grenache opens with mild blackberry and black currant bouquet with notes of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, pretty acidic, and very juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused black raspberry with notes of black plum and blackberry and hints of mild old oak in the background. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors and mild tannins are nicely prolonged. Enjoy - Ken
