2008 vintage. Sweet cigarbox and leather... Elegant and clean. Balanced, long finish. Excellent bottle.

Oaky vanilla and savoury, hibiscus and earthy minerality, leather. Smooth and medium with cranberry tartness. Good stuff

It definitely tastes different w/ the new young vine Grenache. Takes a glass or two to get adjusted. I love the new formula & the bodega. Always been one of my favorites.
