The nose 2014 Grizzly is a melange of delicate spice notes and fruit. It is full bodied on the palate with ample tannins that will continue to soften with age. Once again the spice notes come to the fore with subtle fruit and a long, persistent finish that echoes the same.

Tucked away in the Santa Cruz Mountains on a historic vineyard site, Big Basin Vineyards since 1998 have carefully restored the vines that were first planted by French immigrants in the 1900s. These vineyards are cool climate, mountainous, and marine influenced - creating wines that are refreshing, balanced, and complex. The winery focuses on organic viticultural methods, harvesting low yields to maintain quality, and low intervention in the cellar - all of which produce wines that showcase the care and precision of the winemaking and grape growing.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

"The 2014 Grenache Grizzly from Big Basin Vineyards is one of the highlights of the range, wafting from the glass with aromas of kirsch, orange rind, rose hip and herbs. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, supple and layered, with a good core of fruit, youthfully chewy tannins that should melt with a few years in bottle and good, balancing acidity." -Robert Parker

"This bottling of an Alban clone was fermented 56% whole cluster, and makes for a more mineral-driven Grenache, with aromas of dried red currants, sarsaparilla, leather and pencil shavings. It's very dry on the palate with red plum, rosewater, candied jasmine and a hint of spearmint, but the firm tannins need much more time to smooth out." -Matt Kettmann
