2013 "A2B" Alicante Bouschet

20.00 25.00

Im a big fan of Alicante Bouschet for many reasons. Mainly I just love to drink the wine, but I also like it because Grenache is it's dad and I love Grenache so much!  Also, my grandpa made it in the basement in Milwaukee and top of that, it's hard for me to not root for the underdog and in 2015, Alicante is the underdog.  Most of it that was grown in CA has been ripped out to make way for Chard and Cab. That's fine for most people, but this is some worth while fruit and as long as i have something to say about it, this Alicante is here to stay. So DRINK IT UP people! One try and ill bet you feel the same way that I do.

Opaque ruby in color, once in the glass the nose explodes right away. Delightfully intoxicating aromas of black and blue berry fruit leap forward first, followed by notes of cherry head candy, crushed violets, caramel, allspice, cloves, and cigar box. I could go on. In your mouth, more persistent and chewy berry fruit: blue and black + lots of sour cherry and tart blackberry. This wine is a baby, one year old as I write this. I'm drinking it now and loving its youth, but patience will be rewarded as well. Put some away and drink it over time as this wine will just be getting better for years to come.
