Wahluke Slope Grenache Stone Tree Vineyard 2010

Member Review by jtryka:

Well, you get a treat today, as I am highlighting two wines that I enjoyed with my Thanksgiving dinner. The first one I enjoyed most of since it's surprising how many people are intimidated by red wine with turkey, even when it's a lighter red like the 2010 L'Ecole No. 41 Wahluke Slope Grenache from the Stone Tree Vineyard! The color in the glass was a lighter shade of ruby with a nose that had notes of sour cherry, cedar and smoke. The taste was quite fruit forward with flavors of ripe plum, cherry and strawberry, intertwined with dried herbs and a somewhat earthy quality. The tannins were quite subdued leading to a very delicate finish. The fruit flavors paired very well with the turkey, which even when perfectly cooked I find can be very bland.
