A three-bottle-night was not the plan...but there you go. Terrific wine from Anthony Yount. Started off with Cris Cherry at Villa Creek, and now is making great wines at Denner, this is is red offering, which complements his amazing whites under his Kineros Cellars label (the “Alice” being the best grenache blanc you’ll find for the price anywhere in the world). Terrific grenache-driven blend, this is not one for long ageing, but a terrific one to open now. Well done, from one of the best young guns from Paso! — a month ago
I believe this was a one off production for Booker. Jada Vineyard is located near Denner.
I followed this over two days and if I would have guessed blind, there is no way I would have guessed 60% Grenache on either day (although day 2 showed more finesse and lift) as it seems more dominant Syrah. This is high-toned and juicy. Great nose to it. Aromatically, there is licorice, melted dark chocolate, ripe and baked dark fruits, herbs de Provence, and charcoal. It’s already fairly soft and plush on the palate. Bite of tannin and heat toward the mid palate and finish, but it’s certainly not as heavy or dense as you’d expect. Grenache shows up briefly with some pepper and a small reveal of dried red fruits at the core. I think this is in a good drinking window. I believe @Paul T- Huntington Beach helped me get my hands on one of these a while back... — 4 months ago
