Mike,
Great meeting you at TPS event. Well done ... and thanks for your help with the petite syrahs!

Although I haven't opened it yet, we bought a bottle of the Spanish grenache. For me, that is quite a feat because it is my least fav varietal! But this one didn't have the fresh, green veggie essence that I find in many bottles of grenache.

Thanks very much for your nice words. It was great to meet you, too -- glad that you enjoyed. Danny and I certainly had fun with it.

Grenache can be tricky -- and you actually had two of them! (Although the C-d-P was a blend with Syrah...) I've come to really enjoy it. I've found grenache's little vegetal flavors work well with tapenades and the like...

Mike,
I know that C-d-P is mainly Grenache, but those wines are at another level.

Since you are a food guy too, you may enjoy this post.
