Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2009 Pickpocket Grenache is built like a cage fighter with a background in ballet, it’s full of power and grace. Brawny scents of cherries and cream, bread pudding, fig and cinnamon stick are deftly supported by a lithe palate of bright cola, mince meat, broken branch and kirsch. The elegant palate is sustained with an herb driven finish and ripe, chalky tannins.
