Stewed fruit, pomegranate, black licorice and a little hot on the nose. The palate core is stewed dark fruit with some serious smoke, oak, and alchohol. Overall, a little out of balance with all those components and the alcohol stands out more with the heavy tannins.

A pretty good wine. All Grenache. We had the 2009 Vintage on 9/16-17/18. Tastes of dark cherry, cedar, and pepper. A full bodied wine with some spice on the finish.

2012 vintage, opened Jan 2017. Lovely balance. Sorry, we sucked down the bottle before I could do a detailed description. We all loved it though.

A powerhouse! This is classic with its black fruit, herbs de Provence, and anise seed flavors. Barnyard funk emerges with air along with a streak of minerality. Let this sleep for another 3-5 years for better integration.

Fruit nose with a slight mushroom aroma. Full-bodied and too rounded for my liking, lacking in tannins for character. Roasted dark fruit flavours giving it a savoury fruit-forward palate. However, it seemed to lose steam after 2 hours with fruit flavours dissipating and leaving behind too much acid and too little fruit.
