Are you Fing kidding me???? This is just bonkers in so many ways. Would have pegged this as burgundy from the nose on this. Slight meaty reduction that gives way to gorgeous red fruit and stony minerality. I cannot get enough of this. Literally. This does not exist anymore. @Hardy Wallace you’re pretty decent at this whole wine thing. You should make more. 💯 — 2 days ago

Soy sauce, black peppercorn, green olive, cassis, and clove. Dark red fruits, mocha and earthy notes stand out on the palate. Well balanced, juicy, and soft. More of an old world feel. Very solid weeknight drinker. #garyveewineclub — 5 days ago
I was very pleased with this wine. The bourbon barrel aging adds a nice touch of sweetness, vanilla or caramel notes and some smoke...all on the backend. The nose has some BlackBerry or cassise. I enjoyed this with a nice Asian dish of soy glazed chicken with spicy brussel sprouts and rice. Picked this up at Sam's for $12 and will check Costco. Great price point with way!

100% Grenache from sunny and beautiful Monterey, CA.
Nose has an earthy, grilled cherry/blackberry, rosemary and lavender.
Palate has a beautiful dark fruit compote, leather, mineral dust and fading oak/vanilla influence.
A much better bottle with an addition year of resting, since our prior experience. Tannins have mellowed, but the finish persists. 2022+ on future bottles.

Nan Helgeland makes extraordinary wines because she pays attention both to the wines and the people making them. That’s a whole other story though. This wine: red red fruits for sure(cran-rasp-blackrasp) well balanced but the tannins are gonna play hard to get, then they flirt with you then hide again. It’s intriguing — 3 days ago
