Top Grenache 5/8/12

Average price: $73.99 from 8 stores
This explodes from the glass with fennel seeds, wild herbs, candied red currants, a liquory intensity of fruit, red licorice, tar, pencil lead, and candied apples with a hint of allspice. This is bright and a bit nervous in the mouth with crisp tannins and plenty of bright acids. There’s wonderful inner mouth perfume married to a light, elegant mouth feel. The flavor intensity is a bit less than anticipated but this is almost a Burgundian rendition of Grenache. The long, light finish shows a lovely streak of cranberry. Give this a year for the tannins to soften and it should be even better! 91pts
