Ambition is clear, but its ripeness is bordering on too lofty. Tannins are sweet and pleasurable and the expansive mid palate very cool. I do find the alcohol too obvious on the finish, though.

Great fruit and nuance. I agree with Bradley that Gabilan area can be amazing for Grenache.

Impressive touch. Fruit is restrained which really highlights some earthy herbal notes. Very balanced. I have been impressed by this producer. Making a number of different styles with different grapes. All have been very balanced and delicious.

A bit young by a few years. Tasty but pricey for how much we liked it. Fruity with some moderate complexity but wish we had waited a few years.
