France
Grenache
Red Wine

Wine Spectator Notes : This has a fleshy, beefy feel, offering dark currant and plum paste flavors lined with light charcoal, smoldering tobacco and dried anise notes, but showing only modest grip, letting the fruit and light funk play out easily on the finish. A solera-style Grenache.

Robert Parker Notes : In the same mold, the NV Little Basket Press (all Grenache) offers good pepper, spice and herbs in a medium-bodied, easy drinking package. It’s a solid, bistro-styled red to drink over the coming couple of years.

Tasting Notes : Very few grapes can clame to be able to generate as much diversity as the grenache. Little James Basket Press has a complexity which is difficult to get with a young wine holding a vintage. The bottlings of 2014 will contain 50% of 2013 and 50% of solera (which is the blend of all the vintages from 1999 to 2012). Cherry, oriental spices, ginger bread, peat.
