Core Alta Mesa Vineyard Grenache 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Write your review here, and rate the wine from 1 to 5 glasses above.Earthy, jammy, alcoholic nose. Lot’s of raw beef, cocoa powder+, garrigue+, apricot, bitter cherry, watermelon, pollen notes. Vivid in the mouth with a lithe feel that belies it’s formidable alcoholic content. A full blown wine but not heavy or extracted, just ripe and alcoholic. This is freshly fruited with notes of apricot, watermelon and cherry on the palate, not the most complex but well balanced and showing excellent integration and balance and a real sense of harmony in the mouth once you get over the initial alcoholic shock. Finishes very abruptly . Eminently fun to drink but without follow through. 88pts
