Unlike any wine I've ever had from California, and truly unique in its expression of Grenache. A tremendous effort, enormously complex, rich and flavorful, with tiers of spicy black cherry, wild berry, sour cherry, anise, game and floral aromas, turning dense and earthy, with chewy tannins.
The 2000 Grenache Alban Vineyard is among the finest Grenaches produced in California (along with the Sine Qua Non offerings). Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by a glorious perfume of raspberry and kirsch liqueur, blackberries, licorice, and pepper. Full-bodied, viscous, and opulent, it is an uncompromisingly rich, intense, authentic example of Grenache that should evolve for 10-15 years. A revelation!
Good full ruby. Expressive aromas of raspberry, bacon fat, roasted meat and smoky oak. Ripe and generous in the mouth, with sound acidity framing the strongly roasted flavors of blackberry, espresso, chicory, black pepper and charred oak. Once again, this grenache reminds me more of Cote-Rotie than of the Southern Rhone. Finishes ripe, firm and long.
