I typically decant this before dinner and taste it for a few hours, very nice soft fruit, layers of mineral (clay) and a very smooth finish always. The acidity is right on the mark too. If you are up for something new to try, this is your woot! Thanks for listening.
You don't say which vintage you've n=been pouring, and I can't help wondering why they're still showing the '07 (100% Grenache) on their website, while selling off the '08 here. With 11% Syrah, and a splash of Viognier, it seems like this one would be somewhat different, not to mention a year younger. I'd be interested in how the 2 vintages compare.

Hopefully none. I hate when there's bull sh*t in my wine.

Hi Chris: Thanks for joining us! What can you tell us about the fruit source? Yours is my second encounter with Dry Stack Vineyards Grenache- I had an Eric Kent recently, which I enjoyed as well.
