Opens with an impenetrable wall of animal aromas. Once it dissipates, Kirsch and incense appear. In a tough place but should emerge in a few years at a better place. Not for everyone. 100% Grenache.

Dark bricking tawny. Opaque. Fruit forward nose with herbs, kirsch, raspberries, some earth and a little licorice. Nicely balanced in the mouth. Tannins resolves. At peak. Good with pizzas from the pizza oven.

2007 Grenache. I’m a believer occasionally when these G blends work like this. Wish more had this pure G magic. This has it.

Opened up slightly raisiny but evolved into something very nice. 12 years old and already established terschiary notes of sandalwood, smoked meats, dried cherry and sage. It was such a big and plush wine in its youth (almost like Paso Grenache) but it has really turned into chateauneuf du pape

Exceptional ruby color - youthful in every way. Bacon fat, garrigue, Strawberries and an earthy sensuality. Phenomenal

Perfect with the Thanksgiving meal and right off the retail shelf.
