Blackberry, raspberry, cherry, white pepper, mossy earth, tobacco, oak and hints of currant. Great structure and soft tannins.

Vintage 2011 - a wine that deceives you in the beginning: you only smell vanilla and wood. I don't like that... but after ten minutes in the glass, suddenly the fruit breaks through. Aeration Alert for this Spanish wine!!! Beautiful aftertaste. #spain

Love the label of this 2 Locations Grenache by Dave Phinney as much as the wine!

E5. Bouquet of red roses and luscious violets. Even in this shitty hotel water glass. Definitely buying this one at home to enjoy in proper crystal. Snoot!

E Is For España. E is the fourth release of the Locations wine from the Iberian locale. Phinney uses Garnacha, Tempranillo, Monastrell and Cariñena grapes grown all over the Peninsula. The locations for this wine include Priorat, Jumilla, Toro, Rioja and Ribera Del Duero. Aromas of currant produce an elegant first whiff of this incredibly dark wine. Layer in some tobacco, pepper and sweet oak and you have a nose worth remembering. It brings to mind great wine I’ve had from the varied regions, er, locations of Spain. The sip is lush with black fruit, and spiced with white pepper, mocha and a hint of vanilla. There is enough tannic grip here to tame a steak right off the grill.

Yet another godforsaken overripe Grenache bomb from Spain. Need I say more?
