ODONATA GRENACHE, HOOK VINEYARD, SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS 2014
The nose on this bottling is very elegant and layered, offering well-integrated aromas of rose petals, clove, sharp hibiscus and rainbow peppercorns. Clove and allspice show strongly on the sip as do cinnamon and boysenberry, all framed by firm tannins and a bright powerful acidity.
NVWE Notes: This gutsy Grenache opens with a focused outpouring of red cherry, strawberry, lingonberry, raspberry tart, kirsch, red currant, and red rose scents in counterpoint to savory spice notes that include pink and white white peppercorn, Castelvetrano olive, rosemary, bay leaf and tobacco. This exotic mix is as apparent on the palate, where tannic grip and cherry pit piquancy step-in to bring a greater prominence to the hard spice notes. The finish is long and food-balanced and with airing the fruit notes take center stage and everything grows more polished and prettier, so although it is destined for improvement, it’s truly attractive already 240 cases produced.
