KERLOO CELLARS “Upland” Grenache 2014

(Snipes Mountain, Washington State) $40

In summer, one needs silk, not velvet. That goes for wine, too. Which is why I love this silky grenache from the tiny area known as Snipes Mountain in Washington State. Grenache should have a kind of ethereal richness, but not heaviness. Kerloo nails it, plus, the red cherry preserve and red licorice flavors are fantastic.  There’s a bright fresh spiciness to the best grenaches—a character that is beautifully evident in this wine when it’s paired with something simple on the grill.
