White flowers, cloves and mint wrap around layers of plush dark fruit in a sensual, mysterious Grenache of the very highest level. Despite its size, the Pandora is more refined than the straight Grenache.
Blend: 90% Grenache, 10% Syrah
Incorporating 10% Syrah, the Grenache-dominated 2011 Pandora comes from a single block of chalky soils in the Seymour's Vineyard. More floral and exotic than the straight Grenache release, it has beautiful currant, blackberry, violets, toasted spice and licorice aromas and flavors all emerging from the glass. Full-bodied, supple and sexy, with great acidity, it's slightly more expansive, sexy and textured than that more concentrated, yet streamlined Grenache release, and as such will drink better in its youth.
