2008 Larner Grenache horizontal- shows much more oak influence, though well integrated at this point. A nice, polished wine with plenty of secondary flavors. Good, but doesn't bring much excitement to the table.

Very nice Grenache from our vineyard that is just starting to show its age. Secondary aromas of fig, cooked cherries, pomegranate, and dried spices. Flavor is smooth and velvety and medium finish and medium length. Still shows well, but on the cusp.

Purchased at auction. I can see why someone would let it go. Seems to be past its prime. Pity.
