Deep dark ruby in color, with prunes, stewed plums, and blackberry compote primary aromas; with moist earth, vanilla pod, and cacao coming through second. Very earthy on the palate; potting clay, wrought iron, and dust along with smoke and tobacco. Acidity is still amazing! Tannins are present and husky but on the mellow side, like in baking chocolate. Long savory finish. Invokes sighs of satisfaction and fulfillment!

Crazy and absolutely hedonistic, this massively fruity and structured Garnacha fires on all cylinders, offering a boatload of red and dark berries, lofty amounts of sweet, chocolatey oak, but brilliantly balanced by juicy acidity. Impressive and ageable.

A little lighter but still with some tannins on the finish. This would be gone fast!

An intense and awesome expression of Grenache. Has a viscous feel that is complemented by multiple levels of flavors with sherry, kirsch and pepper being prominent.

Vintage 2011 / red plums, cherries, eucalyptus, new wood, this wine goes for the prizes, slighty too alcoholic for me

This needs a ton of time to open up. Should probably decant for several hours. Really great wine with great structure and fruit. Edges smooth out with time.
