T-Vine Napa Valley 2012 Grenache, $14.99-$35.99, 90 points, poured a spectacular bright purple/red with a broad transparent wine ring.
The nose was perfumed with floral notes and a distinctive black pepper.
Medium-bodied, good acidity, and firm supportive tannin with a lovely blend of red fruit flavors, a hint of blueberry, and mulling spice were excellent.
Finished long on some heat (14.5% alcohol), warm spices, and a hint of rose.
Paired perfectly with my fried Vidalia onions.
The label states that only 798 cases were produced, and I intend to purchase more of these while I can.
