GRANT BURGE VINEYARDS 2010 GRANT BURGE HOLY TRINITY
"Medium deep garnet in color, the 2010 Holy Trinity comes from five different vineyards with fruit from the 1890s vineyard accounting for about 40% of the total. The blend is usually 44% Grenache, 40% Shiraz and 16% Mourvedre and is matured using no new oak. It presents a very pretty nose replete with warm mulberries, kirsch and raspberry preserves with nuances of Indian spice, bacon and olives. Medium to full-bodied, it is very structured by grainy tannins and has very crisp acid to lift the considerable concentration to a long, yet still youthful, finish. Drink it now to 2020+."
