Peterson GSC Red Wine 2014, Dry Creek Valley
The Grenache from Bradford Mountain produces a high quality wine with all the classic characteristics of great Grenache—soft, luscious fruit, pepper and licorice spice, and some of the garriguey flavors, with the essence of minerality from the site coming through. Each year they experiment and trial the different Rhone flavors from our mountain vineyard. Along with the Grenache, the wine has classic components of Carignane and Syrah, balancing the wine beautifully and giving it potential to age for at least 5-7 years.
This delicious Rhône-varietal blend invites you in with the first whiff. Intriguing aromatics of red fruit are laced with notes of earth, spices and a rich mineral essence. The luscious core of ripe summer berries offers round corners and spicy edges. As the wine opens, the tone darkens a shade as flavors of dried strawberry, black cherry, plum, coffee and a touch of rhubarb appear. Balanced acidity bathes the plush palate and embraces the flavors as they linger.
