Transparent ruby magenta. Piquant, tamarind and exotically red fruited nose with a hint of white pepper and hot road tar. Red florals and red candy, then a crunchy-chewy bit of saltwater taffy or sweet red starburst candy on the palate. Such a salty, juicy and delicious finish, with an herbal twist. Really stylistically unique and delicious. — 7 days ago

Wow! I received this in a shipment this week and I couldn’t wait on cellar time to open this one. It was quite simply spectacular. We noted a nose of pepper and leather intermingled with fruit. The taste rolled around your tongue and lingered for a very long time afterwards. Wonderfully balanced and sophisticated without being overdone or overwrought. This is one of the most complex and interesting Grenaches we have had and it just takes this grape places others aren’t going. Stanley and Elena are killing it! — 4 days ago
