Ochota fugazi

Grenache, Fugazi Vineyard 2015

Ochota Barrels

That perfume. So much, so pretty, so floral. Rose petals, potpourri, raspberry, maraschino cherry. Glossy feel in the palate but dusted with fine spice, alpine herbs and a light chalkiness. Knife edge tension of gently sweet fruit, slender tannin and cranberry-like acidity. So very delicate, refreshing, fine and light, finishing with gentle building pucker. It’s got a pinosity of sorts, and feels frisky and so very refreshing to drink. Killer.

Reviews

  • "92 points. Vivid red. An expressive bouquet evokes sexy red fruit preserves, incense and spicecake, with a smoky mineral element adding vivacity. Smooth, concentrated and energetic in the mouth, with intense raspberry and fruitcake flavors firmed by an exotic touch of blood orange. Concentrated, stylish wine with a very long, spicy, gently tannic finish." (vinous)
  • "92 points. Supple and elegant, with a sense of precision to the sour cherry, clove, smoky black tea and white pepper details. Aromatic and expressive through the long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2030. 300 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
