The 2010 vintage of Melée Grenache is a beautiful deep ruby/plum color with a striking wet polished garnet quality in the glass. The aromas are unmistakably Grenache with wonderful notes of freshly picked rose petal, early season plum and Luxardo Cherry along with scents of shale, new leather and a hint of tobacco. This wine explodes on the palate with focused flavors of currant, licorice, blue iris and ripe black cherry. Complimenting these flavors are supple, yet firm, tannins and soaring acidity that produce a long lasting, elegant and linear finish.
Blend: 90% Grenache, 10% Syrah
