2011 Paul Lato "Lumière - Larner Vineyard" Santa Ynez Valley Grenache

SKU #1180118 93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark One of the top Grenache releases from this cool vintage, the 2011 Grenache Lumiere Larner Vineyard was 100% destemmed and aged in 50% new French oak. From tiny yields, it offers fantastic Grenache flair with perfumed aromas of flowers, underbrush, incense and ripe cherries all emerging from the glass. A gorgeous effort that builds incrementally on the palate, with a seamless texture and no weight, it will benefit from 1-3 years of bottle age and have upwards of a decade of longevity.

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Brilliant ruby. Exotic, pungent scents of blackberry, cherry-cola and incense, with a smoky topnote. Offers musky dark fruit compote flavors and velvety texture, with complicating notes of vanilla, cinnamon and candied rose. This powerful, palate-coating wine could stand up to the richest red meat dishes but it shows no undue weight. Finishes with excellent clarity, supple tannins and lingering spiciness. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2013)
