Wine Review: This Grenache from Usseglio rocks! It is opaque and dark ruby colored and opens with a pleasant pomegranate bouquet with a hint of old oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, exceptionally well balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a delicious black cherry with nicely integrated oak and hints of black plum. The finish is dry and its very sticky fine tannins are lengthy and very prolonged. This wine will need to be decanted in the the short run, but would be perfect for a cowboy ribeye. Enjoy - Ken
