Bee Hunter Wines Eagle Point Ranch Grenache 2015 Mendocino, California
A very pretty color of ruby with a very wide brick rim.
Interesting nose of blackberries, cedar, cooked cherries, raisins, figs, chocolates, sweet vanilla, cola, spices, mint and black pepper.
Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with cooked cherries and strawberries, lemon peel, vanilla, light raisins, dried fruits, cedar, herbs, licorice, cola, chocolates, sweet vinaigrette, spices and black pepper.
Long finish with fine tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a delicious Grenache from Mendocino County in California. Much lighter than I expected it to be, but it is so yummy.
This Single Vineyard is good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour of airtime, when it shows the complexity.
This six year old is peaking now, and drinking very nicely with nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel.
Alcohol is not showing at all, so watch out. Nicely balanced at this point. Easy drinking and tasty.
A great sipping wine, but good with food too. I paired it with Brie cheese and crackers.
14.8% alcohol by volume.

Unusual to be drinking a wine this young. Decanted 45min to begin. Nose somewhat muted, though dark fruit and oak are there. Inky purple. Great ripe black and blue fruit. Could still use more time in the air to blend together, but the minerality and earthiness is definitely there to match the fruit. Nice med-long finish. Decanting 2+ hours recommended. — 17 days ago
