Blind tasted ... (choice was grenache from spain or france -- that was Ch Redortier 2004)
color is similar, a transparent med ruby nose: med+ intensity, tons of spice, cranberry, red fruit palate: dry, acid is med+ tannin is from oak, med, body med- alc est. 14% (was 15%) finish is med+
style note: Succulent red fruit, racing acidity, and a good dash of spicy oak give this wine its bright cherry and raspberry flavor. The light bodied style would pair well with foods such as poached salmon, chicken salad, and some vegetarian dishes.
Beautiful translucent red color. Juicy, vibrant tart red fruit flavors.the lightest, least-rich Grenache I have had. I'm wondering if this is a little too tart for my taste, but will try another bottle before rendering a verdict.
The idea is very old vines brought back to health and life. All Grenacha? Apperently so. The color is rather clear and not so dark for a wine that has so much alchohol (15%). This is apperently a lower tier.
Sweet raspberry fruit, this is its second day and you can tell it once had really gutsy big tannins on it. But not a little bit calmer and giving.
Fairly fresh and vibrant, definately a tightly wound little wine. So how did this Grenacha get so much tannin? But definately worth $15.
