Tasting Notes
You remember when you were a little kid, and there was this little store round the corner that had a nice man behind the counter who would sell you a big bag of the best candy for a nickel? We don't either, no one is that old! But if we were that old, this wine might just remind us a little of those days, with aromas of cherries, vanilla creme and allspice; and flavors of zingy cherry and blackberries - maybe even that funny cinnamon candy you used to think was yucky - finishing with impressions of 10W30 oil. Whoops, I guess we wandered into the hardware department, but I think you get the idea...
Vintage Notes
Made from 100% Grenache from our own Colina Roja Block. At five years old the vineyard is approaching maturity, which is shown here with another great Torcido. Colina Grenache ripens latest at the Estate, and with the long cool ripening season of 2009 we saw excellent color and complexity. At harvest, the grapes were lightly crushed, meaning about half of the grapes were not broken but fermented whole. This allows the grapes to ferment from within, which adds more fresh fruit characters. After pressing, Torcido was put to French, American and Hungarian oak barrels to develop its rich fruit flavors and aromas.Traditionally we have added a touch of Petite Sirah to add color and body to the wine, but this vintage gave such great flavor and intensity we couldn't resist its 100 percent unadulterated-jolly-rancher-cherry-candy goodness.
