Decanted for hours. Aromas of dark fruits were wonderful. On the palate the wine filled the mouth with smooth grenache flavor. A great lasting finish. I would highly recommend this to anyone. If you never had a Grenache, this is the one to try. Nick, great job!
Lovely. No extra weight or wood in this wine, just a bright, clean, lively, and focused effort where the vineyard, and not the barrel, is allowed to shine thru. Fruit has a slightly tart cherry edge to it which I like with a bit of black fruit lurking in the background. Seamless and silky across the palate with excellent polish, a fine tannic frame, and a fine minerality throughout. Great concentration, though not at all cumbersome like some grenache based wines where the greater influence of wood adds unnecessary weight and muddles the composition. Relatively speaking, this is a dancer not a slugger.
OMG... fantastic grenache based wine. Even better than my last experience. Sultry and intriguing from the first sip. Wonderful richness upon entry is offset perfectly by appropriate brightness and acidity... the balance created is exquisite. Great consistency across the palate with absolutely no holes. Full bodied with a soft, velvety mouthfeel, and melt in your mouth tannins. Great balance and good length on the medium rich, utterly delicious finish. This seamless well composed beauty is on par with some of the best wines from Paso. Drinking well with a short decant. Gorgeous stuff and highly recommended.
