Delectable Featured Wine

85+ year #oldvines, pure sand soil, the winemaking expertise of @Pax Mahle. The result is a thrilling example of grape, terroir and winemaking union. The spicy, feisty side of #Grenache leaps forward carried by bright red fruit and racy acidity. Tannins rounded and freshness abounds thanks to fermentation in cement tank.

Bright ripe fruit. Raspberry, strawberry jam. Great mouthfeel and some minerality.

Spicy, bright, grippy and restrained. Old vine concentration and flavor without flab and weight. Better with lots of air. I wish there was more Grenache like this.

Pax with restraint and terroir is a lovely thing, as are old Grenache vines. Right vineyard in the right hands. Good now but likely to improve.

The best of all 10 Wind Gap wines I tried today. And one of the cheapest. 13.75% alc and it shows. Love the Jolly Rancher strawberry flavor. Gum coating tannins. Wish more of their wines had this slight added layer of ripeness. From 85 year old vines grown on pure sand in Alexander Valley. Made in a concrete egg. A huge surprise.

Soulfully structured. This could easily cellar for a decade, though it was great tonight with pasta marinara. Perhaps not a classic example of the varietal, but impressive Grenache flavor & aroma draped on a Côte de Nuits frame.
