In the glass, this Central Coast Grenache has a light brick center with fading purple edges and a THICK translucent halo that you can read a book through….
The nose is earthy and sweet ———–> A sniff shows dried-raspberry potpourri, bursting strawberries, and a subtle forest floor note….
The palate starts juicy and fresh with more of strawberries I got on the nose before cranberry notes and coriander spice come out to play ———-> The mid-palate levels out a bit with some black tea and mushroom funk before beautiful jasmine flowers show up to pave the way for a surprising vanilla bean ending….
Anybody who’s been following along at all knows I’m a SUCKER for Grenache…. I love the versatility of the grape and when I find a quality expression at a good price, you’ll find me bursting at the seams ————> At like $15 bucks, this one from Bonny Doon Vineyard is JUST THAT!!!! 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with something pretty like Lord Huron – The Night We Met
