A perfect wine any way you look at it, the 2012 Grenache Rattrapante comes all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills and spent 33 months in 27% new French oak. My notes start - and end - with "Wow." Giving up tons of black raspberries, peppery herbs, licorice, dried flowers and cured meats, it's a massively concentrated, rich and layered Grenache that somehow manages to stay graceful, lively and fresh on the palate. There are roughly 800 cases of this elixir and any Grenache lover should do their best to latch onto a bottle (or two). It's also worth noting that this cuvee saw 26% whole clusters, which is a small change from past vintages.

Reticent, with ripe red currant and toasty mocha aromas leading to a lovely texture and well-structured but inexpressive flavors. The refined tannins have presence. Drink now through 2022. 803 cases made.
