Average price: $9.99 from 3 stores
Dark, jammy and little spicy on the nose with licorice and lavender scented wild strawberry fruit that shows a little dusty white pepper top note. Moderately big in the mouth this is classic grenache, with real volume in the mouth, and surprising god acids driving tart wild berry fruit that is nicely contrasted against some slightly bitter herbal and root veggie nuance. Not chewy or dense at all, though there are some powdery tannins on the back end along with a dusty mineral note that lingers on the long fresh berry fruited finish. Light, fresh, fragrant and fairly complex, this really is lovely with good energy and drive in the mouth and fabulous purity. 88pts
