Côtes du Rhône Grandes Vignes d'Estezargues 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 La Granacha is made from 100% old vine Grenache (some parcels are nearly 100 years old). Also aged in tank before being bottled unfined and unfiltered, this is the most powerful La Granacha yet made, tipping the scales at nearly 16% natural alcohol. The belief that such a powerful wine can not also be elegant is disproved by the precise, fresh, lively kirsch liqueur notes intermixed with tobacco leaf, loamy soil, and forest floor characteristics. This delicious, deep ruby/plum-colored, round, generous, glycerin-filled wine can be enjoyed over the next several years.

This great wine from a Natural winemaker is full of dark fruit, with tiny suggestions of smoke and game. Great now in the flush of youth but also shows interesting medium-term aging potential.
