CAYUSE "God Only Knows" 2018

Wine Region: Washington - USA

Grape
: Grenache

Tasting notes: "Erupting from the glass with spiced cherry and smoked plum tones, the 2018 Grenache God Only Knows Armada Vineyard offers up notions of dusty roses, red peppercorn and dried potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is balanced with energetic acidity, a spicy, red-fruited expression and fine-grained, succulent tannins. The wine concludes with a dusty essence and a lingering flavor of red pepper skin. The wine rested for 22 months in neutral French demi-muids and foudre. It's stunningly good, and I have no choice but to finish the glass. Just over 6,200 bottles produced." - Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate
