Top Grenache 5/8/12

4. Mounts Grenache Dry Creek Valley (2009)

« Prev Next » 4 of 6
This is a bit dark and roasty on the nose with notes of dusty earth, green tobacco and cracked pepper accenting the dried strawberry fruit. It also does show a bit of heat. Lighter on the palate than expected with lovely brightness to the strawberry and slightly pomegranate-tinged fruit. This has a nice spicy quality on the back end and tannins that add just a hint of mouth-grab, though they balance the richness and sweetness of fruit on the finish well. The finish adds nice notes of licorice and spice along with a slightly minty top note. 89pts
