Reached back into the Circle B bag of tricks tonight for a little Paso Robles Grenache. Thick and rich, rootbeer and carborundum coming off the nose with a dark stewed berry. Concentrated cherry, glazed jerky and a sharp mineralific streak of acid which pretty much comprises the finish–alongside a little lead shavings and dusty rose. Lovely stuff if you can find it.
