TRed currant and plump red berries are lifted by hibiscus and violet notes on the nose of this wine by Matt Brain and Josh Baker. It's quite ripe with plum, pomegranate and cherry fruit on the palate, but also relatively light in texture. Elegantly complex, it also discloses pipe smoke and eucalyptus elements.

Winemaking Notes:

Right out of the bottle, raspberry, cherry, nougat, and fresh herbs give an indication of this wines character. A serious but sexy character, like role-playing night with the cop outfit. Notes of tobacco leaf and sandy gravel that define great Grenache are also abundant after some time in the glass. Similar to our 2010 and 2011 offerings, this is a juicy wine with silky mouth-feel and balanced acidity.
