Sans Liege "En Gedi" Grenache 2013
Could this be the way, or should you have turned left at that last hedge? You’re lost. Looking up at the towering cedar overhead - the lodestar, you take a quick swig of raspberry liqueur and breath in the scent of sage knowing it must be close. You retrace your steps and begin to think that nothing in the maze looks familiar when something catches your eye. The door, how could you have missed it? It creaks open and memories of your youth and this clandestine place rebound - dried peppercorns, clove, figs, wild blueberries. Sitting knee to knee as cool stream water spatters onto nearby stones to share stolen chocolates from a chalky paper she carried in her apron pocket.
- The Wine Advocate 94 - "Another awesome wine is the 2013 En Gedi Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard, which was mostly destemmed (80%) and spent 22 months in 20% new French puncheons and the rest in neutral oak. Loaded with sweet blackberry fruits, peppery herbs and a kiss of minerality, this full-bodied Grenache has true richness and depth, sweet tannin and rock solid freshness. Drink bottles through 2023."
