Tasting Notes


Bright purple. Highly complex aromas of black raspberry, cherry pit, licorice and black pepper, complemented by more exotic hints of apricot and white flowers. Suave and juicy on entry, then alluringly sweet and vibrant in the mid-palate, with vivid red and dark fruit compote, lavender and Indian spice flavors. Finishes very long, with terrific energy and clinging spiciness.


The 2009 Grenache Upside Down opens with a gorgeous bouquet redolent of freshly cut roses, berries, spices and licorice, all of which resonate on the palate. Gorgeous focus and length are in full evidence as the wine takes shape in the glass, showing dazzling purity and class. Silky tannins frame the exceptionally elegant, racy finish. This is a striking, mid-weight red with a bright future. This Grenache based blend includes 11% Syrah and 5 % Mourvedre. The vineyard sources are 72% Eleven Confessions, 22% Cumulus and 6% Bien Nacido. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.
