Well done per the usual Dragonette! I expected Grenache out of California to be big and boozy and no...this is damn elegant. It’s like when I meet a reformed frat boy who is sensitive. Shocking and delicious.

Pretty red fruit, red vines, artificial cinnamon and spices. At first, tons and tons of herbs. Restrained and elegant. Silky. Easy to love

Well balanced wine. It held it's own in a serious blind tasting.

Superb. Juicy and fruity, followed immediately by an earthy minerality. Subtle complexity, elegant structure. Wish I had the dough to make this a go-to bottle. Just delightful.

Rich and chocolatey, with faint nuttiness, almost like roasted hazelnuts. It opens on the palate with smoke. Mmm.
