GRIMM'S BLUFF CABERNET SAUVIGNON "ESTATE", HAPPY CANYON OF SANTA BARBARA 2014
Candied black cherry aromas meet loam and fluffy chocolate cake scents on the nose of this bottling from Rick Grimm and winemaker Paul Lato, from a brand new vineyard above the Santa Ynez River. Black plum, black spice and more black cherry flavors show on the lush and intriguing palate, where the texture is grippy and the results promising. DATE PUBLISHED 5/1/2017 MATT KETTMAN
NVWE Notes: This is a lovely and distinctive Cab with juicy fruit and loads of spice. The nose offers fruit notes of red currant, dark cherry, black raspberry and violet, over suggestions of cola, rose tea, baking spices, dried sage and cumin seed. It is juicy and sweet-natured on the palate, where flavors of red Maraschino cherry, red currant, “red vines”, violet candy, vanilla, star anise and baking spices rise above a restrained core of black currant and dark cherry. The finish is lingering and the tannins noticeable, yet genteel. Very appealing now, it should be more so in a year or two. Blended with 4% Petite Verdot, 206 cases made. Debut release!
