A study in power, grace and femininity. Closest thing I’ve experienced is a Cuvée de Capo CnDP, and this rivals it. Gob-smacking but loaded with layers of flavours - white flowers, tangy red fruit, smoked meat, licorice. No sign of 15.7% alcohol. Can only imagine how well this might age.

Triple decant it to make the alcohol blow off a bit and let this sumptuous Grenache stretch it’s legs. Luscious pretty juice

Tight! Obviously jumped on this too early but excited for football! This will be a great wine to follow over the coming years.

2013 Vintage. 15.7% Alcohol. I guess I didn’t wait long since January 2020... consistent with prior notes and likely better with more age.

Copious fruit forward wine with acid and tannin balance there. Aerated for 3 hrs before enjoyment started.
