Extracted aromas of crushed cherry and spring rhubarb pie are delicately framed by seasoned french oak. The entry is vibrant and powerful which leads to luscious flavors of wild strawberry that perfect rounds out the mid-palate. Ripe Blackberry and blueberry notes coalesce to form an intense and lasting finish.
Description

Details

Robert Parker 92 Pts. - The Wine Advocate - "A collaboration between Napa's Joel Gott and Dave Phinney, the semi-opaque 2012 Cotes Catalanes Grenache is a smoking blend of 100% Grenache that comes from the singular, black schist soils located around the village of Maury, in the Agly Valley in the Roussillon. Aged in French oak (a small part being new) and hitting 15.6% natural alcohol, this sexy, full-bodied, pedal-to-the-metal effort bears plenty of resemblance to the old-vine, 100% Grenache efforts coming from Chateauneuf du Pape. Kirsch liqueur, blackberry, toasted spice, garrigue and hints of vanilla bean all flow nicely to a seamless, silky, yet decadently styled red that has fine tannin, and a blockbuster, heady finish. It will certainly not appease those looking for lightweight aromas and flavors, but count me a fan. The oak is still present, so give it a year in bottle; it will drink nicely for another 5-6 years.
