(RP 100) A perfect wine any way you look at it, the 2012 Grenache
Rattrapante comes all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard in the Sta. Rita
Hills and spent 33 months in 27% new French oak. My notes start - and end -
with “Wow.” Giving up tons of black raspberries, peppery herbs, licorice, dried
flowers and cured meats, it’s a massively concentrated, rich and layered
Grenache that somehow manages to stay graceful, lively and fresh on the palate.
There are roughly 800 cases of this elixir and any Grenache lover should do
their best to latch onto a bottle (or two). It’s also worth noting that this
cuvee saw 26% whole clusters, which is a small change from past vintages.
