Dark fruit and rose water. Nice Structure. Not too fruity like new world Grenache can be. More like a Southern Rhone.

Great Tuesday night cool climate Grenache. Giving it an extra tenth of a point here because this producer sells half bottles of these, perfect for a weeknight.

Out of half bottle. Alcohol was more noticeable than in prior bottles I've had but love the bright fruit.

Excellent- light enough to be paired with any food, chicken, pork, turkey. But unique- loved it. $29.99 at Wine County in Signal Hill, CA.

Fruit up front without being jammy...caramel flavor comes behind the fruit...finishes clean with some pepper, smooth on the throat, no chalk

Awesome red fruit, vanilla with great balance and more body than appears.

Color - clear ruby, pretty surprised at how translucent this was actually

Holy shit, what a wine! Easily in the top 5 wines I drank this year

Nose - strawberries, cherries, array of red fruit, slight spice, lovely nose but not overly complex, very subtle in my opinion

Palate - everything that was on the nose but much more amplified! A little bit of creaminess that I haven't really experienced in a red like this before. Tiny bit of oak and vanilla but very tertiary. Seriously delicious stuff, way too easy to drink! And it hasn't even been open that long...shit I need to get more of this.

I would absolutely buy this again and would recommend it to

Amazing floral and herbacious notes on the nose, with mouth picketing acidity and tannins on the first sip and a dry finish with notes of cranberry, vine ripined tomato and herbs
