Top Grenache 5/8/12

3. Tolosa Grenache Noir Tolosa Vineyards Edna Valley (2009)

« Prev Next » 3 of 6
This is herby and woodsy on the nose with iron and blood notes, along with minty accents that frame the dried blackberry fruit. Very soft on entry, though not lacking in acid. This is rich and pure on the palate with a little beet root earthiness and a gentle underlay of stones propping up the spicy, raspberry fruit. The finish is brisk and shows a hint of vanilla accenting the stony, raspberry flavor. This gains with air revealing compelling teriyaki jerky and herbal aspects. The palate remains a bit tight but the finish continues to gain length. This should improve with time in the bottle. 89pts
