2017. Even before I opened this tonight, but after I bought the lamb for dinner, I had reminded myself that I’m in love with grenache. Is the southern Rhône my top region? I don’t know. But it’s up there. Really, really up there. This juicy, concentrated, delicious bottle is just one example of why. $25 is a big spend for many wine drinkers, but with wines like this I think your money is well spent. 14.5% abv. And that alcohol is beautifully and sneakily integrated. Enjoy!
