Tastes Like: Visually inviting with its bright garnet color, the 2017 Public Radio shows super-fresh aromas of Bing cherry, strawberry, and raspberry, with very subtle hints of violet and allspice. On the palate, the wine is seamless and has perfect balance. Fresh acidity, supple tannins, and red fruit flavors create a synergy that is absolutely captivating and expressive of the very best that a Grenache-based wine can possibly offer, including a very long fragrant finish.
What the Pros Say: Wine Enthusiast - 92 Points: "Light aromas of cranberry, strawberry and cherry are bolstered with an earthy background of freshly dug loam and light sagebrush on the nose of this bottling, which includes 10% Syrah. There's a compelling balance of toasted sage, crisp red fruit and light smoke on the flavorful sip."
