Principal varietal(s): Grenache

Old vine Grenache from vineyards in the southern Languedoc-Roussillon area. Extremely ripe-tasting, almost but not quite objectionably so. Full-flavors show rich dark cherry, cassis, and red licorice, with a touch of prune. You'd almost expect a sweet wine from the nose, but in the mouth it's relatively dry, and carries a fairly long, slightly medicinal finish. Interesting wine that needs some powerful red meat or pasta to accompany it. [Price estimated.] - HK 2014-10-18
