Birichino 2014 Besson Vineyard Old Vines Grenache (Central Coast)

There's a rather extreme minerality in play on this old-vine bottling, with wet gravel, scree and crushed slate leading the nose alongside crushed carnations, rose petals and touch of dark-plum fruit. Muddy chalky clay tones carry that vibe into the sip, only allowing a slight berry flavor to rise above. Matt Kettmann
