F Bomb Grenache

Had this a week ago and forgot to transcribe my notes – here we go!

F Bomb is made in Santa Barbara by the Dirty Pure Project.  It has a few percent each of Barbera and Lagrein – northern Italian grapes – added to the blend.

F Bomb Grenache (2012) Santa Barbara County, California

Color: garnet red.

Aroma: vanilla and cherry, with some definite heat.

Taste: bright, with good acidity and freshness. Mostly fruit notes on the midpalate and finish, but there’s a little earthiness in there as well.

Pleasant enough as it is, but not worth putting into your cellar – especially when you consider how many different Grenache bottlings from Spain are out there for half the price.
