This is a very nice Grenache from Santa Ynez Valley, California.
Easy drinking and fruit forward. Drinks very much like a new world Pinot Noir.
Showing red and blue fruits with spices, peppercorn, leather, earth, light vegetables, tobacco and dark coffee.
Medium bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.
Nice nose, spicy and tangy. A good quality wine and very easy drinking.
I gave it a slight chill, and had it by the pool with some cheeses.
13.6% alcohol by volume.

Red with a rosé backbone. I first enjoyed this wine 3 years ago. I still love this wine! Sangiovese is tannic and acidic LYB is a perfect balance. Stop what you are doing and open a bottle and enjoy. Do not think, just drink. Pairs well with salmon, basil and family. — 3 days ago
Quite a serious and delicious rosé. I would take this as my rosé forever if given the choice. Raj modeled this on a favorite Rhône rosé and made it with great care. Grapes were harvested and pressed gently, same day. Neutral barrels were used. Fermentation was at ambient temps with no additions, including SO2. This is serious, delicious juice. Wish I had another bottle for aging. — 18 days ago
Needs two hour decant, fruit is great, terrior make me yearn for a trip to Los Olivos. Barrel influence still a bit strong (menthol notes from char) but works out nicely. Fruit is in the blueberry and plum spectrum. Some sediment is noticeable on bottle and on palette (nice texture), color and body has thinned a bit, In its peak, and guess a 3 year window before fruit begins its decent into the abyss (que: Slayer 🤘 haha). — 15 days ago
