Done in a more oxidative style, this Grenache features poached raspberry, dried fig, and prune-like fruits. A balsamic reduction, violets, and dried thyme create a complicated nose. The palate is assertive and grippy, making this a perfect pairing for marbled steak or charcuterie. The finish is long and bold. This is a terrific wine to age or open today.
