Maison Bleue's wines have won over everybody, from wine writers and critics, to our customers, to me. Their pure, electrifying Le Midi Grenache opens with super-expressive black raspberry and cracked white pepper, picking up wild huckleberry and grilled steak toward the finish. Give this a bit of time to open and it really sings. Maison Bleue is a true standout among its peers. I highly recommend this. - Marcus

2010 Tanzer - 93 points - (made with 30% whole berries): Bright dark red. Compelling perfume of strawberry, raspberry, wild mint, white pepper and fresh herbs: Washington grenache meets Roumier Chambolle-Musigny. Suave, silky and aromatic in the mouth, with lovely subtle intensity to the pure flavors of red fruits, mint, spices and pepper. Very classy, savory wine with a chewy, aromatic, building aftertaste featuring suave tannins.

Jon Martinez's 2010 releases are wonderfully suave and perfumed wines that offer remarkably silky texture for their relatively low pHs (in the 3.4 to 3.5 range). Really splendid New World grenache. - Tanzer

The 2010 vintage has aromas of kirsch, dark plum, black raspberries and white pepper. Silky tannins and bramble fruit flavors with balanced acidity and earthy minerals. This wine is 100% Grenache.

200 cases made.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2009 Wine Advocate - 94 points - The 2009 Le Midi Grenache was sourced from the great terroir of Boushey Vineyard. The wine was blended with 20% Syrah and aged in seasoned French oak for 10 months. Cedar, exotic spices, white pepper, leather, game, lavender, black cherry, and blueberry scents compose the wine’s alluring aromatic array. This leads to a medium to full-bodied, dense, rich, velvety-textured, plush wine that deftly conceals enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years. It will deliver optimum drinking from 2013 to 2024." - Jay Miller
