Light bodied but big, round and jammy grenache. Bursting with red plum and ripe strawberry flavor and a hint of white pepper on the finish. The nose has hints of black tea and roses. Yum!

This is an intense Grenache. Intense aromas, with the fruity and the savory duking it out. Spicy cherry / raspberry extract and vaguely smoky, dark stony minerality. A certain salinity too. Intensely concentrated and clingy in the mouth, but not in a jammy or fruit-bomby way. Rather, the most intense savory rendition of Grenache fruit instantaneously attaches to all surface area of the mouth. Gets more savory and minerally as the long finish fades. Went great with rosemary and garlic grilled lamb chops. I am really becoming a believer in Washington State Rhône varietals.

Light and sweet, full of bright red fruit flavor on the initial pallet, with a hint of pink grapefruit and white pepper. Yum!

True cool weather Grenache, notes of tobacco on strong raspberry. More tannin than expected (good).

Amazing aromas if leathery tobacco and raspberry/rainier cherry. Smooth with subtle hints of cherry, raspberry, strawberry. Knowing the region it was grown in, you get a little bit of Walla Walla onion with it 😉 I would gladly order this bottle again.

Oak and spice with solid acidity. Ripe red fruit.

Translucent ruby in the glass, it offers strawberry, raspberry, rose petals, and sage on the nose. Intense, sweet fruit flavors of black cherry, raspberry, and red licorice lead to a spicy, cinnamon finish of impressive length. Medium bodied with fine grained tannins and 14.7% alcohol. Made from 100% Grenache with 50% stem inclusion sourced from Upland Vineyard in the Snipes Mountain AVA then aged 22 months in neutral 500L puncheons. Winemaker and owner Andrew Latta, born and raised in Kentucky, has crafted a Wine Enthusiast top 100 wine of 2012. $40.
