Amador Cellars 2015 Estate Reserve Grenache Noir (Amador County)
This wine is nervy in a good way, showing good acidity to match generous alcohol and a fine mixture of complex aromas and flavors ranging from mineral and dried herb to cherry, iron and beef juices. The color is in the natural lighter end of the garnet range, the aromas bring a wide variety of nuances, and the fruity threads weave in and out of savory ones on the palate and finish. Jim Gordon
