Top Grenache Tasted July 2013

7. Tercero Cuvee Christie Santa Barbara County (2009)

« Prev Next » 7 of 8
In neutral oak for 42 months 65% Grenache, 15% mourvedre, 10% syrah, 10% petite sirah Spicy, tarry and deep on the nose with a black cherry component, a little camphor, mineral and smoky limestone notes. In the mouth this is relatively light bodied, showing lovely freshness and depth of clear fruit shows nice complexity with sour cherry, wild strawberry and mineral notes, framing notes shows a hint of spice, dried rose petal and herb stem. There’s nice tannin structure on the finish that is supportive but integrated adding a nice tea aspect with spicy mineral notes on the fairly long finish which does show a suggestion of heat 89pts
