McPRICE MYERS 2011 GRENACHE "L'ANGE ROUGE" SANTA BARBARA COUNTY 750mL

We love how distinctive this wine is. From the very first sniff, you know this is Grenache…and you know it’s gonna be awesome! Spice, red fruits, touch of oak, flowers (violets) on the nose, with majestic flavors of strawberries, currants, black cherries, sandalwood, and touch of rawhide in the mouth. Ripe, rich, and full-bodied, yet still shows acid on the finish. The modest tannin, good structure, and lively make this a great food wine!

ANTONIO GALLONI 92 POINTS - "I always look forward to tasting McPrice Myers's wines, as they are so full of character and personality. That is certainly the case with these 2011s and 2010s. As always, the wines are bold, rich and juicy. Readers will also want to take a look at the wines Myers makes under his Barrel 27 label, which are reviewed separately here. Those wines also deliver plenty of personality, but at lower price points."

"The 2011 L'Ange Rouge is gorgeous in this vintage, even if it needs time for some of the slightly rough edges to melt away further in bottle. Dark red cherries, pomegranate, spices and tobacco all emerge over time. The 2011 is another striking, hugely appealing wines from McPrice Myers. The medium-bodied style is best suited for drinking over the next handful of years. Drinking window: 2014 - 2018."

ROBERT PARKER'S THE WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "These 2010s and 2011s from McPrice are straight up fantastic. Very classy and pure, they all benefitted from substantial air time and deserve another year or two in the cellar. In addition to delivering rock-star quality, they also represent superb values. This is another Paso Robles producer who has consistently produced outstanding wines that remain more than reasonably priced given their quality. They merit serious attention!"

"Moving to the 2011 reds, and one of the more southern Rhone styled Grenache blends coming out of California, the 2011 Grenache l’Ange Rouge offers up beautiful kirsch liqueur, garrigue, spice and basil-like nuances as well as a medium to full-bodied, nicely focused and structured palate. There’s some tannin to resolve, yet it’s sweet and well integrated. Enjoy this beauty over the coming 4-6 years. Drink now-2019."
