Made from the same pre-Phylloxera parcel of Grenache, it's incredibly intense this vintage, boasting enough purple raspberries, black cherries and Asian spices to send me almost into sensory overload. Yet for all the flavor, this full-bodied wine is velvety-silky in feel, with a long, elegant finish. - Joe Czerwinski

Medium to full-bodied, structured, and concentrated, it has plenty of tannins as well as sensational balance.

No new oak is used. It's a deep, vinous, intense and spicy wine that's really drinkable, chiselled and intense. It's medium-bodied with a really fine, aerial freshness within. A lovely deep acid line runs through the ample ripe tannins, leading to a long finish. The 2017 will age well, and it's such an impressive wine it deserves to be better known.

Highly expressive aromas of mineral-tinged red berries, incense and licorice candy, along with a suave floral nuance that builds as the wine opens up. Appealingly sweet and seamless on the palate, offering penetrating raspberry, cherry, spicecake and candied lavender flavors that are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Finishes silky, sweet and impressively long, with gentle tannins and lingering floral pastille and exotic spice notes. -- Josh Raynolds
