Ripe berry fruits - black and blueberry, raspberry - and dark roasted coffee, light black pepper, and hint of violet on the nose. The palate, while dense, is more about texture than richness, with lovely acidity. Soft round tannins.
Smooth, well balanced, and delicious. — a month ago
When I think of Paso reds, ripe, rich, and concentrations come to mind. But from the few bottles I’ve tasted so far, the Grenache does not fit that profile.
This is very pretty Grenache. Perfumed and floral with fresh and light candied red fruits. Medium body and a vibrant and round palate, gaining complexity and singing after 3 hours. Possibly my favorite bottling so far from the winery.

The winery produces just 1 white each vintage in small quantity. This 100% Grenache Blanc is the best one I’ve tasted yet.
Peach, pineapple, mandarin orange, white flower, chrysanthemum, hint of white pepper on the nose. On the palate it is plush yet very crisp, with a chalky mineral undertone. Semi dry. A bit heat on the finish, but even that went well with curry chicken.
Interesting fact: Grenache Blanc was not recognized as a varietal by the U. S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms until 2002.
