5574555744USThis is a syrupy, ripe take on Grenache, which renders it varietally unrecognizable. There's a deep core of cassis and black cherry fruit, but any remaining details have been blown out by the alcohol.8634OregonRogue ValleySouthern OregonPaul Gregutt@paulgwine Simple Machine 2012 Grenache (Rogue Valley)GrenacheSimple Machine
