2012 TOR ROCK Grenache Cuvée Cooper
Winemaking The 2012 Cuvée Cooper continues to show us just why we love Grenache so much.This vintage was completely destemmed and fermented with its own wild yeast in a single open top fermenter using a combination of punch downs and pump overs. This is a Grenache for a Grenache purist, not someone who loves Grenache that tastes like Syrah. Once again we bottled this unfined and unfiltered. Winemaker’s Tasting Notes The nose on the 2012 Cooper is all red fruits and earth and then backed up by some light spice and mint. On the palate this is medium weight with more red fruits, roasted meats, white pepper and a touch of licorice. Like the 2011 that came before it - this can be paired with any pasta, meat dishes, or would go wonderfully with cheeses.
