Grenache Cuvee Cooper

Grenache Cuvee Cooper Wine Details
Price: $53.00 per bottle

Description: Pale ruby color in the glass give the first hint that this is true Grenache. On the nose there is graphite, baking spices, earth and raw meats. On the palate it is full weight with very firm/bracing acids and grip. It shows cherry, white chocolate, peppermint and bay leaf. Truly as close to a California Chateauneuf as you are likely to find with its purity and balance and true Grenache soul.

Varietal Definition
Grenache Noir is the world’s most widely planted grape used to make red wine, sometimes made into a stand-alone varietal, frequently as a Rosé, but most often as a backbone of red blends. Its strength is its ability to grow in arid and windy conditions. It’s particularly suited to warm coastal regions of California, Spain and France. Grenache-based wines tend to be high in alcohol, with attractive fruit qualities in youth and a sweet berry character.Used as a component in some Northern Rhône reds, nearly exclusively for Rhône Rosés and as the primary component in nearly all Southern Rhône red blends, Grenache is probably most notable as the base varietal for Chateauneuf du Pape, Cotes du Rhône and Gigondas. In spite of its fame coming from French wines, Spain is most likely this grape’s origin.
