Top Grenache 5/8/12

5. Bucklin Grenache Sonoma Valley Old Hill Ranch (2009)

« Prev Next » 5 of 6
Dark and spicy on the nose with a little peachy edge to the deep, black licorice, cracked pepper, leather and bitter chocolate aromas. This shows some alcohol on the nose and a decidedly black profile. Rich and round on entry, this shows lovely, elegant tannins and juicy acidity supporting fairly bright and slightly exotic black berry fruit. There’s a hint of pomegranate here along with some gentle spice notes, but not a ton of complexity. The balance is deep and really fine, and this finishes with mouth dusting tannins adding a savory note to that exotic fruit. 88pts
