Epiphany Grenache Blanc 2012 – Santa Barbara, CA

IMG_2591Crisp nose of flint and minerals, faint rubber and grass. Hits the tongue with great acid and the mouth-feel of slippery honey. Does not overpower the palate with fruit; you know you’re drinking a wine (not eating a fruit basket) and one that’s lovely and rewarding. Flavors of stone, greens, citrus, and untanned leather.

This bottle was purchased during a driving trip through Santa Ynez wine country in August of 2014, where the reds caught most of our attention. Utterly perfect with white peaches, tomato, and arugula salad with olive oil. It didn’t play as perfectly with the St. Angel triple cream cheese. This wine is interesting and will turn heads, though probably not blow minds. Can be purchased directly from Epiphany Cellars for $25.
