Top Grenache Tasted July 2013

4. Tercero Grenache Santa Barbara County Watch Hill Vineyard (2009)

« Prev Next » 4 of 8
Neutral oak for 30 months, 50% whole cluster Smoky on the nose with a touch of leather, a little nuttiness, polleny and spicy with a hint of cinnamon but not a lot of fruit on the nose. Bright on entry with pretty bright acids for such a big wine. Rich with deep wiry herb framed raspberry/wild strawberry fruit that fills the mouth, this is a little jammy on the palate but it never looses clarity nor balance. There's big follow through to the fruit on the backend with a bit of fine tannin emerging on the moderately long finish which shows just a hint astringency, 89pts
