Cherries, strawberries, raspberries on the nose. A lot of juicy, red fruit. Some vanilla aroma. Strong presence of tannin and really bright acidity

Brighter, tangy than you expect from grenache. Very soft floral and cherry bark on the nose. Very little hint of the 14.5% abv. Chewy but delicate stem flavors, and more dark berry than cherry flavors. Much less daylight between this and, say, a VML pinot than this vs a typical, highly structured, hot, jammy grenache. Incredibly smooth after 6 years. Could've had another 6 maybe to cellar. Bravo.

Didn't love it as much as we remembered. Oddly light and fruitier than we recalled. Did NOT pair with a spicy chicken chili. Perhaps waited too long for such a light wine.

Crimson red, aromas of plum, peppery finish. Pairs well with Cowgirl Chimney Rock & Italian Casalingo Salami.
