A little let down with this one. Very young and a little biting and sharp. It shows the SQN strength with restraint but it needs at least 3-4 years to round in to form. If you drink now give it a looong decant. Minimum 4-5 hours.

Im not sure my words can articulate such a wonderful example of Grenache. Loaded with rich layers of tar, truffle, bitter sweet chocolate 🍫 and incenses. Slight fig element that runs the finish. Exceptional!

Late night meanderings. In a better place than the Syrah right now IMO.

Cranberry bog attack. Very astringent mid palate with a suspiciously flat resolution. Strong suggestions of oxidation. Mayan chocolate impression lasts for 30 seconds.
