CR Greybehl Wine Company The Grenachista Sonoma Valley Grenache Noir 2016, California

Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim and medium intensity.

Fruity nose with blackberries, blueberries, sweet strawberries, raspberries, wood, spices, earth, light vanilla, tobacco, coffee and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet strawberries, wood, vanilla, cloves, herbs, earth, tobacco, coffee, light vegetables, chocolates, peppercorn and spices.

Medium plus in length on the finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very enjoyable Grenache from Sonoma valley. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows the tannins (60 minutes).

Tastes like a good quality Côte du Rhône red. Spicy and fruit forward.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses and cured meats.

14.6% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$38.
