(From 2011 Vintage) This Grenache cuvee was first released in 2004. The fruit is hand-harvested and vinified 100% in stainless steel tanks to focus on the freshness and purity of the Grenache fruit. The wine displays round and textured cherry flavors with a brilliant spice factor throughout. The tannins here are well behind the fruit which makes this a wonderful wine for everyday dining and parties. The Gournier Grenache Noir is a true crowd pleaser and great value.
