Eagle Point Ranch Grenache 2015

Bee Hunter Wines Eagle Point Ranch Grenache 2015 Mendocino, California

A very pretty color of ruby with a very wide brick rim.

Interesting nose of blackberries, cedar, cooked cherries, raisins, figs, chocolates, sweet vanilla, cola, spices, mint and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with cooked cherries and strawberries, lemon peel, vanilla, light raisins, dried fruits, cedar, herbs, licorice, cola, chocolates, sweet vinaigrette, spices and black pepper.

Long finish with fine tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Grenache from Mendocino County in California. Much lighter than I expected it to be, but it is so yummy.

This Single Vineyard is good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour of airtime, when it shows the complexity.

This six year old is peaking now, and drinking very nicely with nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel.

Alcohol is not showing at all, so watch out. Nicely balanced at this point. Easy drinking and tasty.

A great sipping wine, but good with food too. I paired it with Brie cheese and crackers.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Château Rayas

Réservé Pignan Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache 2007

A requested pre-dinner decant served very well as explosive and distinctive Rayas aromatics assert themselves immediately. It’s very complex, hedonistic and layered with flavors you can’t stop listing as they come at you in waves and do somersaults in the glass. Signature kirsch cherry liquor, winter citrus, black raspberry, sage, lavender, incense and a fine mineral infusion on the back end.

There is superb intensity and a palate saturating texture while at the same time it has an airy weightlessness and sensual elegance. Finishes with great energy, length and persistence. This is a fantastic vintage for the Raynaud wines especially, with clearly many more great years ahead to evolve and gain even further complexity.

Sine Qua Non

Testa dei Cherubini Eleven Confessions Vineyard Grenache

2014 Vintage. 16% Alcohol. Needs a bit more time but extremely enjoyable. First time we’ve seen a white wax seal on any SQN. Part of Gail’s birthday celebration. With black truffles on house made fettuccine at Il Cortile in Paso Robles. First wine from that wooden six pack. After a day of tastings at Torrin, McPrice Meyers, Fulldraw, Booker and Benom, had to be a special bottle to stand out! Paso rocks! — 7 days ago

One of the most interesting rosés I’ve ever had - 140 year old vines give unexpected weight to a wine that is still light in its feet. $22 — 2 days ago

Château Rayas

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache 2007

The wine has evolved much more than I thought it would. Color has dropped out significantly. Still a very good medium bodied rayas but drink now. Elegance of 100 pct Grenache still absolutely there. Drinking coche and reynauld next to eachother is a rare treat. — a day ago

Brunel De La Gardine

Lirac Grenache 2018

Nice grenache nose with blackberry notes along with garigue and tapenade touches. This is simple yet very inviting. The palate is very well made with a very strong acid backbone, a nice blackberry note all along, somehow a milky mouthfeel, a powerhouse of a midpalate with a good grip and a very long finish with fruit and that grip, along with a tiny bitter touch. This is simple but very well made. More of this!! — 10 days ago
