Nice expression of Grenache. Light ruby color. Terrific dusky nose with loads of floral scents. Good tart raspberry and plum palate but somewhat astringent. Nice soft mouthfeel, which became more voluptuous with hours in the glass. Tasty, not special, especially for SQN.
Wonderful wine. Dark and rich. Coffee and chocolate overtones. Beautiful dark purple color. Very slight bitterness on opening smoothed out after short time. Delighted I have additional bottles. This wine will drink well for many years.
Stunning array of stewed red and black fruits, jammy smokiness, perfectly ripe. Palate is full, round, robust and silkly -- imagine all the words you can use to describe a well-integrated wine that coats the palate. Grenache at its best, in my opinion... but I like big wines like this.
double-decanted, followed over 3 hours. dark purple, minimal lightening at rim; super exuberant nose, candied black cherries & sweet blackberries, brown spices & vanilla bean; full-bodied; intense & concentrated black fruits, structured & opulent at the same time, w/solid acid/tannic balance & faintly bitter espresso notes on the youthful conclusion. most expressive of tonight's group, but young.
