@Delectable Wine this is the Grenache PetNat from this producer. It was not in the database. Really interesting PetNat. And, probably second to the Westminister Pet-Nat from Maryland that went out into left field with their recent bottling. This one is delicious. A hint of bubbles. Consistent on the very front with some lemon and honeycrisp apple. Pears and peach invade the middle. A little yeasty towards the finish. Very enjoyable. Would be an excellent light sparkler to enjoy on a 100 degree day. These are in no way meant to cellar, so pop the bottlecap on this one and enjoy this awesome little Pet-Nat from Grenachista. — 15 days ago
Loved this, pulled from the cellar at the Crafers Hotel, SA. Last drink before going dry Feb. Paired with duck. Darker fruited with a bit more heft from some Syrah mixed in. Earthy, mild spice, dense, very whole bunch giving a gorgeous savoury tannic finish. Great food match. — 16 days ago
Almost medicinal like an amaro. Very nice to drink. Warming with some good tannins and body. — 4 days ago
A very light color, garnets and glass.
The nose is spicy - almost like a curry of southern Spanish spices leading with Tarragon.
Looks may be deceiving! Huge meaty flavors, with dank forest floor, tabaco, pencil lead, licorice, granite, dusty cellar, and popsicle Stick tannins with lip chomping coriander acidity.
A cornucopia of expression. This is not to be missed. Definitely not a pedestrian wine.

Spectacular Chateauneuf-du-Pape from century-old Grenache vines in the Colombis lieu-dit with extremely low yields (15 hl/ha). Only 900 bottles produced in 2015. Intensely perfumed with licorice, dark cherries and fresh herbs. Concentrated and powerful, but very elegant at the same time, like Burgundy on high alcohol steroids. The Grenache alcohol (15,5 % abv) is perfectly balanced by the acidity and the velvety tannin structure. Very long finish too. Biodynamically farmed. This producer always seems to get it right. — 19 days ago
A few wines from last week’s 4th Friday event!
One of the best Cayuse Grenache I’ve ever had. So much lift and perfumed soy, iron, smoked brisket, spicy red fruits on the nose. Classic whole cluster. I assumed it had to be near 100% (and it is). Rich yet nimble on the palate, carrying currant, black tea, black cherries, crunchy cranberries and green stem. Wonderful acidity here. This is in the zone right now.
