    May 1, 2021 - Wonderfully rich yet still showing tannin and grip that I’ve never seen in a wine that’s primarily Grenache. That should allow this one to age well beyond the 10 year mark, though it’s tasting excellent at the moment.

    April 30, 2021 - This was the wine of the WOTD, a rich deep wine with flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and coffee. Impressive in every aspect, this had a long finish and silky smooth tannins.

    April 3, 2021 - Big for Grenache, with more white pepper. Totally my wheelhouse, strikes you as Syrah forward. Black raspberry, cinnamon, dried herbs bacon and mild olive

    April 2, 2021 - Nicely perfumed, fresh strawberry, cherry with moderate intensity but still elegant and multi layered. Tart, tobacco, and cherry prevalent on the finish. One of the better California Grenaches I’ve had.

    April 2, 2021 - Monochromatic. Old world granular tannins. Medium acid, medium-bodied. Tight vs fruit waning. Agree with drink now. This vintage was tough in CA
