Maison Bleue le Midi Boushey Vineyard Grenache 2010

Member Review by jtryka:

Unlike it's French cousins, Maison Bleue's Grenache from the Yakima Valley of Washington tends to be a bit more muscular yet complex. Given its youth, I recommend decanting or at least opening this one up to let it breathe a bit before enjoying (I've had this one open about 2 hours now). The wine is a lovely bright ruby in the glass, with exquisite clarity. The nose is a lovely combination of ripe fruit, berries and black cherry, with hints of Asian spice, fresh herbs and black pepper. The wine has an simply wonderful velvety presence, as you are cascaded with ripe fruit at the outset. The fruit smoothly transitions to some wonderful minerality, with layers of dark chocolate mixed in. The finish is supported by some well structured tannins that form a base for a long, smooth and dry finish that seems to last forever while beckoning you to another sip.
