Eric Kent Grenache Barrel Climber 750ML
Eric Kent we love this wine for its exuberant and pretty perfume of red and black fruits and range of warm Asian spices. Bing cherry, black currant and pomegranate flavors lead to a snappy, lively finish. Almost Pinot-like in color and weight but with Grenache's signature backbone and grip, this will really shine with Mediterranean-inspired foods like grilled, herb-rubbed meats (especially lamb) and veggies, tomato based pasta dishes, and hearty cheeses. Aged in mostly neutral barrels and blended with 9% Las Madres Syrah for added layering and complexity, the Grenache is still a rambunctious youngster. If you must open one now, we recommend decanting it for an hour before you dive in. Otherwise let it rest for a year or two in the cellar and you'll be very pleased indeed!
