Fantastic Grenache here. Depth, structure, youthful power. Lifted florals and red fruits. Underlying tension. Hints of tropical fruit in the aftertaste. Long and long. Superb.

Great great great - so Pinot-like. Tiny splash of co-ferment Gewürztraminer adds to the spice character from this vineyard. So pretty and so delicious.

Some VA but in general really balanced. Tight acid but in no way doubting that it's sweet ripe fruit. Glad to taste 2013 after being cellared for a year.

So weird. Aromas of amaro, eucalyptus and mint. Fresh and lively.
