Baby Rayas...LEGIT! Dank, ripe red fruit; raspberry and pomagranate, persimmon drenched with musky men's cologne, amimalistic sauvage, fresh leather and oh so delicious truffle funk. Almost Tokaji like... #sexpanther

2010. Very seldom do I reach for Grenache in the fridge, but this is always a winner. Smooth, light with lovely strawberry fruit and warm spice. Yum!

Crazy transparency and delicious complexity. Waves of flavors of stewed strawberries, cherries, cranberries, tomato paste, fresh green olive, potpourri, and blood, but also a dried lemon peel and violets headiness. Not lacking acid in the least, this is great now but also has a future.

Boom goes the dynamite. So complex and layered. Need to acquire some of this.
