Two Shepherds 2012 Grenache Noir – Absolutely Beautiful

Ever have a wine that leaves you still thinking about it a few days later?  That is what I have been doing ever since I uncorked a bottle of Two Shepherds 2012 Grenache Noir this past Saturday night.  I am a huge Grenache fan and winemaker William Allen’s 2012 Grenache is exactly the type of Grenache I look for.  It’s an absolutely beautiful wine!

Tasting Notes

Two Shepherds 2012 Grenache Noir pours a cranberry color in the glass that seems to sparkle when the light hits it.  The wine has a beautiful nose that features aromas of rich, yet delicate red fruit.   It is a light-bodied wine with poised structure.  There are refined tastes of cherries, cranberries, strawberries, and hints of spice.  Elegant with vibrant acidity, this is one of the best domestic Grenaches I have had this year!
