87pointsAlta Maria 2006 Uriel J. Nielson Vineyard Grenache (Santa Maria Valley)

A promising Grenache. Shows tremendous cherry flavors wrapped into elegantly smooth tannins, and the finish is dry and spicy. Pretty good, but a little fruit-driven and one-dimensional. The next step is to build in extra layers of complexity and depth.
