    May 1, 2016 - Not what I expected, but this Grenache seemed very young. A ton of pepper and mint showed, it was balanced, and still well put together. It was a fun wine to drink.

    April 17, 2016 - Gorgeous red fruit, spice and toast perfume. Elegant and lithe on the palate. Sexy fruit and spice. Drinking beautifully.

    August 8, 2015 - This needed about an hour to open up and it continued to improve over the few hours after that. Really wonderful wine.

    January 3, 2015 - Light translucent ruby. Lifted and focused nose of raspberry, strawberry, dried herbs and spice. Aromas a ringer for basic CdP. Palate is light-to-medium bodied. In an elegant style - fruit is very light on its feet. Good balancing acidic structure. Medium finish.
