Tuck Beckstoffer Melée 2011 Grenache, $30.99-$32.99, 92 points, appeared ruby trending Concord grape purple with a narrow clear rim.
Gently aromatic with sweet red cherry, roses, and just a hint of cinnamon.
The silky-smooth medium body carried the flavors of the nose, hints of tobacco and purple grape with moderate tannin and acid.
The pièce de résistance was the finish of the trailing juicy palate, long easy white pepper, and a hint of the well integrated alcohol (14.5%) and spearmint.
95% Grenache and a dollop of Syrah.
