In the glass, this lil guy has a DEEP garnet center with bricking edges and a mid-width translucent halo….
I don’t even have to get my nose in the glass to smell the cassis and raspberry that explode out of the bottle…. When I do get in for a sniff however ——–> I’m hit with black cherries, hot-hot alcohol heat, and dirt caked strawberries….
A sip is LOADED with dark raspberries at the start that lead into blueberry brandy —————– > The mid-palate is a bit dirty with some mushroom funk before the ending adds a lil more black fruit to the picture with a dark and spicy blackberry and black cherry finish that hangs onnnnnnnnn….
As we start heading into fall, I start heading into big ol’ wines that’ll kick ya in the teeth ———> This Grenache from Sans Liege is a great example of one that you’ll find in my glass!!!!
