A similar blend (75% Grenache, 16% Syrah, 2.5% Mourvedre, 4.5% Roussanne and 2% Viognier) and also a brilliant bottle of wine, the 2010 Grenache Five Shooter spent 20 months in 75% used barrels, with the balance in concrete and new French oak. Seamless and elegant, with the house richness and texture, it gives up thrilling, floral-tinged aromas and flavors of red berry fruit, flower oil, spice, white pepper and licorice to go with a full-bodied, layered mouthfeel that keeps you coming back to the glass. While approachable now, it will have upwards of two decades of longevity. (JD)
The 2010 Grenache Five Shooter has turned out even better than I had expected. An utterly vivid, compelling wine, the 2010 is supported by persistent notes of graphite-infused minerality that give the wine much of its energy. Seamless layers of blue/black fruit sit on that razor's edge of salinity in a Grenache loaded with class, finesse and pure refinement. A kaleidoscope of flavors hits the palate on a superb finish that is given an extra dimension of lift from the inclusion of 20% whole clusters. (AG)
Bright purple. Heady aromas of black raspberry, bitter cherry, dark chocolate, violet, olive, espresso, bacon fat and cola; smells like there's a lot more Syrah in here. Sweet, dense and lush, with deeply pitched black and blue fruit and bitter chocolate flavors supported by a firm spine of acidity. Finishes very long and ripe, with fine-grained tannins and mounting mineral and spice notes. (JR)
