On its own, the 2015 Cornas could be mistaken for new world Syrah in all of its ripe dark fruit, intense meaty character and slightly hot finish, until you compare it to the Marietta Gibson’s block. Warm,jammy fruit, black pepper and that touch of oak. So similar, yet so different. •

My local wine shop is making room for lots of new wines, so there are several great bottles on the clearance rack. I'll start with this one from Scott Bilbro

Trying to shoehorn the fall shipments into available storage space and sacrifices had to be made. 2015 Bedrock Wine Co. Gibson Ranch Heritage Wine is dark, aromatic, complex and delicious! Another outstanding wine from a heritage site (planted in the 1880’s) this field blend includes Syrah, Petite Sirah, Pelerousin, Trousseau Noir and Grenache. Another delicious and thought provoking wine from @bedrockmorgan !!❤️❤️🍷🍷

A #california #rhoneblend that's as big, bold and beautiful as California itself.
.
It's a #syrah dominant #redwine with #petitesirah, #grenache and #viognier filling out the blend. It's full-bodied and fruit-driven with an attractive floral, slightly herbal, aroma. For its richness, it's still very lovely and fresh thanks to some soft tannin structure and secondary spice flavors.
.
Sure, it's a #bigred California wine but there's more to it than baked fruit and alcoholic heat. It has layers of flavor and a nice, long finish that would make it a perfect match for a #tbonesteak and a grill. 👌🍷

...candied violets and licorice and chocolate, this is bold and beautiful!
Totally my kind of Cali red!
If you haven't tried this, I highly recommend it, and it's under $20...way over-delivers!

This has previously been a NV wine, but now has a vintage, a new bottle, and a cool new label... 2014 Marietta Christo

A super sipper, redolent of white stone fruits and melon on the nose, the 2013 Ruth Lewandowski Gibson Ranch Naomi Grenache Grid slinks on the tongue with a pleasing oily weight giving way to a majestic mineral finish. Its subtleties reward time in the glass. Tasted in a flight of whites at We Oil at Trolley Square, Salt Lake City. Yum plus. #Ruth #Evan #Lewandowski #GibsonRanch #Naomi #Grenache #Gris #2015 #McDowellValley #Mendocino #California #AVA #white #wine #vino #bianco #sommelier #flight #JodaWineGuy #saltlakecity #Utah #WeOlive #trolleysquare @evanlewski @weoliveslc

Bedrock Wine Co. Gibson Ranch Grenache 2013
Valle Mcdowell, Mendocino, Costa Norte, California
Estados Unidos

Aunque la etiqueta dice que es garnacha podría ser garnacha gris, rouge, noir o quién sabe qué! Lo que se conoce es que se trata de garnacha provenientes de viñedos antiguos, se somete a maceración carbónica con 50% de racimo entero, luego pasa la maloláctico en barricas neutras y tanques de cemento. Un vino tinto ligero similar a un Cru Beaujolais, con aromas de cerezas, frambuesas, cáscara de naranja, violetas, pimienta negra y algunas especias. De alta acidez con sabores maduros de frutas rojas, especias y una nota herbal muy pronunciada. Permanece en el paladar con una agradable sensación masticable en boca, con regaliz y notas terrosas. Muy refrescante y fácil de beber.

Bedrock Wine Co. Gibson Ranch Grenache 2013
Mcdowell Valley, Mendocino, North Coast, California
USA

Although the label says it is Grenache it could be Grenache Gris, Rouge, Noir or who knows what! What is known is that it's old vine Grenache that undergoes carbonic maceration with 50% whole cluster, then put through malolactic in neutral barrels and concrete tank. A light red wine similar to a Cru Beaujolais, with aromas of cherries, raspberries, orange peel, violets, black pepper, and some spices. A zesty high acid wine with ripe red fruit flavors, spices, and a very pronounced herbal note. It remains on the palate with a nice chewy mouth feel with licorice and earthy notes. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

#McDowellValley #AVA is located on 540 acres in southeastern #Mendocino County, #California. The #appellation consists of sloped bench land at elevations as high as 1,000 feet that overlook the #RussianRiver to the west. McDowell Valley is #colder than the surrounding areas of Mendocino County. Currently there are no wineries operating in the AVA. Poor Ranch still has a vineyard block in McDowell Valley but they generally label their wines as Mendocino. Sadly, another #ghostAVA#ghostava
