Grenache, "Fool's Errand" 2014

Sans Liege

Everyone said you wouldn’t make it in time. Hiking the Lycian Way has taken you longer than you thought, but you’ll still arrive before the celebration. Breathing heavy but with intent you take in the aroma of cherries and trail dust as you pass the last few rows of the orchard. At long last, you see the pansiyon. It is boisterous and lively and as you reach the porch you are bathed in the rich scents of figs, Turkish coffee, chocolate dusted blueberries and sage. A friend claps you on the back and hands you a glass. “He did it after all!” he proclaims in a toast.

Reviews

  • "90 points. Plump, with a firm backbone, offering blueberry, smoky beef and orange zest accents that build density toward firm but refined tannins. Drink now through 2025. 300 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
