[Brought to John & Linda's. Decanted 3 hours. Served with cheese course.] Gorgeous nose of exotic red fruit, mint, and spice. Medium body. Lush and very appealing. About half the table loves it. Should have been a few degrees cooler. Showing just a touch hot on the finish.
Classic SQN nuance on the nose, strong even after decanting, magical aroma of extracted dark fruits and spices, friends gathered it is grenache but on super steroid. the palate did not live up to the nose therefore it is only 96 (nose suggests something close to 99). Could probably use more time to develop more structure. My first experience with SQN grenache...hands down the best grenache I've ever had.
