GRIMM'S BLUFF CABERNET SAUVIGNON "CLIFF HANGER", HAPPY CANYON OF SANTA BARBARA 2014
This wine from Rick Grimm and winemaker Paul Lato shows stunning potential for this new vineyard. Blackberry, thyme, black pepper and crushed slate aromas lead to a tremendously savory, umami-packed palate, where bay leaf and stewed mushroom notes envelop a core of blackberry and black currant fruit. The structure is solid, and the finish is long and strong. DATE PUBLISHED 5/1/2017 MATT KETTMANN
NVWE Notes: This “Reserve” bottling is grander and more age-worthy than the winery’s Estate version, and it’s aromas are a gush of Italian Maraschino cherry, black and red currant, blackberry, bouillon, toast, baking spices and dark tobacco. It is dramatically rich yet pinpoint-balanced on the palate: at once gorgeously fruity and piquantly bright, with plenty of weight and impressive grip. The flavors are a lingering, tongue-coating melange of Italian Maraschino cherry, Amarena cherry, black currant, blueberry cobbler, pomegranate syrup, cherry pit, licorice root and humidor-spice. Gorgeous now, it will certainly improve for at least three years, although don't be surprised if this turns out to be long-lived. Blended with 3% Petite Verdot, 406 cases made. Debut release!
