91 Points Vinous - The 2012 Grenache Original Gangster emerges from a parcel in Stagecoach, on Atlas Peak. An expressive, savory bouquet melds into varietal fruit as this silky, precise Grenache show off its polish and class. Grenache is not exactly widely planted in Napa Valley, so this is a real revelation.
