    Winemaker's Notes:

    The nose is an inviting swirl of flowers, spice, earth and red fruits including strawberries and mulberries. The palate is a textural wonderland, slippery graphite then grainy, gritty fruit tannin flows into earthy grip betraying its old-vine concentration. All the while the ripe red fruits dance about, keeping everything fresh and zingy. This is an intense, structured Grenache worthy of aging to build upon its already complex character. This is real Grenache, at its best.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A darker and more savoury example of Grenache from the stable, with leather, black fruits, thyme and black olive; the palate delivers assertive acidity and fine tannins, and the finish is long and expansive.

    Bright ruby. Ripe cherry and plum on the nose, with complicating notes of mocha and dried rose. Round, fleshy dark fruit flavors show very good depth and pick up smokiness with air. A brighter note of redcurrant arrives on the long, sappy, floral-accented finish. I like this wine's focus and bite.
