We have 2 in stock.
92 points Vinous
Saturated ruby. Seductively perfumed aromas of dark berry preserves, potpourri and spicecake, along with a bright mineral overtone. Sweet and seamless on the palate, showing very good depth and a creaminess to its spicy black raspberry and mulberry flavors. Finishes sweet, floral and long, with supple tannins adding shape. I find this ample, dark-fruited grenache quite accessible now. (5/2014) JR91 points Wine Advocate
The 2012 Grenache Castelli-Knight Ranch is 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah. Displaying notes of roasted herbs, kirsch liqueur, licorice and earth and a deep ruby/purple-tinged character, the wine has beautiful texture, medium to full body and a nice, pure, lovely silky finish. Drink it over the next 5-6 years. (12/2014) RP
