2005 - Mcprice Meyers Wine Co Grenache

This wine blew me away.  At $30 a bottle - buy every bottle you can get your hands on.  I only bought 2 and it was sold out by the time I went for seconds.  The blueberry fruit explodes into your mouth and is so obvious, its like drinking blueberry juice!  The wine is medium to full bodied, and delivers an excllent length after swallowing.  This wine is meant for immediate consumption but should last 6+ years easily.

2005 - Unti Vineyards Grenache
Blockbuster Grenache blend
Apr 25, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star
Unti Vineyards' Dry Creek Valley 2005 Grenache (84% grenache, 14% syrah, 2% mourvedre) is not a light rustic grenache; it is a fairly big (14.9% alcohol), fruit-powered wine but is balanced by near-perfect acidity, very decent complexity, and a lip-smacking finish. A nose of red berries, baked cherry pie cooling on grandma's windowsill, and some allspice. All those come through on tasting as well, with some rhubarb, mushroom and black teas elements. A really delicious wine, that gets a little more brooding and serious after an hour or more in the decanter. Most interesting is that all-important mid-palate, which this wine satisfies beautifully. Highly recommend.
4.5 stars.
