2012 vintage notes

95 points Wine Advocate: "An awesome Grenache, the 2012 Primus Inter Pares comes from the Monette’s Vineyard in Walla Walla. Deep, rich and layered, with knockout black raspberry, kirsch, licorice and floral notes, it flows onto the palate with full-bodied richness, sweet fruit and a seamless, elegant feel that stretches out beautifully on the finish. It’s a sexy, impeccably made Grenache to drink over the coming 8-10 years."

Deep dark Grenache from the famous "rocks" area of Walla Walla's vineyards. Purple color, bouquet of cherry blossom, kirsch, raspberry, white pepper and minerals. The palate is rich and complex, framed by silky tannins revealing notes of raspberry, strawberry, kirsch, minerals, licorice, white pepper and violet. This wine will continue to evolve for 12 to 15 years with an optimum drinking window in about 6 to 8 years.

Primus inter pares translates into "first among equals" and that's how Billo and Pinto feel about the fruit from Monette's Vineyard.
