"A very light shade of rusty red in the glass, this complex single-vineyard bottling starts with smashed cranberry, raspberry, citrus-peel and dust aromas. There is a firm tension to the palate, where strawberry, white-pepper and lemon-peel flavors make for a uniquely engaging Grenache." MATT KETTMANN
