Smoke and mineral. Lots of black fruit with a surprising floral finish

Big and linear, with gobs of baked plum and cherries, touch of thyme, and a whack of vanillin oak. Huge weight and concentration, real heavy alcohol 16%, little acidity and an overly creamy, polished texture. A monster hedonists if that's what your into, but for me overoaked, over-polished, overripe, and lacking any form of grace.

An Aussie in campo de Borja showing a powerful Aussie style. I'm into this decadence.

This wine is phenomenal, loads of chocolate, dark wild berries, espresso, and vanilla. One of my favorite wines, but just that... a great wine, yet not a great Grenache. My soapbox - this wine is made big, and so big, it competes with Syrah or even Sangrantino, and therefore looses it's identity.

Stunningly bold and large-scaled, but also fresh and interesting, holding great minerality and wonderful length. Best ever.
