Winery Notes: “Here’s what the dictionary says this about “Verve“: noun: enthusiasm, energy, spirit, life, force, punch (informal), dash, pep, sparkle, zip (not code), vitality, animation, vigor, zeal, gusto, welly(slang), get-up-and-go (informal), elan, brio, vivacity, liveliness, vim.
Composition: Grenache, co-fermented with small amounts of Syrah and Viognier with about 21% whole cluster inclusion, raised for 23 months in a combination of new and ‘certified self-pre-used’TM500, 300 and 228L French oak barrels. (Sadly) only 175 cases bottled. Unfined and, unfiltered.
Galloni 95 Points: “The 2012 Verve (Grenache) opens with super-expressive aromatics and bright, punchy fruit. Varietal elements are amped up in an intense, racy Grenache that delivers outstanding intensity. The fruit sources are John Sebastiano and Watch Hill, a winning combination in my book. What a gorgeous wine this is.”
