Winemaker's Notes

High-toned red cherry, maraschino cherry, white pepper, olives on the nose – almost a meal in a glass as many food groups are represented. It’s all feminine on the nose yet becomes a bit masculine on the mouth where the lusty, broad mouthfeel grows and envelops the palate without seizing it. It has a sense of transparency as though riding in a double-deck fully windowed railcar thru the countryside. Satisfying without being too challenging, on the second day after being open it shows more of the red fruit side and less of the meaty/olive facets. For another perspective, Antonio Galloni recently wrote: “Super-ripe red cherry, rose petal, mint and blood orange all run through this mid-weight, fruity Grenache that can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. Expressive floral and savory notes add closing shades of nuance. 92 points” Works for me.

    The 2016 Grenache Kick Ranch is another bold, racy wine in this lineup. Super-ripe red cherry, rose petal, mint and blood orange all run through this mid-weight, fruity Grenache that can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. Expressive floral and savory notes add closing shades of nuance. 92 points. Antonio Galloni
