Our Review

The 2011 vintage was an extremely hot one for Grenache, and this is a saturated gold-colored wine, with a full-bodied, firmly tannic profile. The flavors are ripe and savory, recalling black cherries, mocha and espresso, along with hints of cocoa and leather. Drink it over the next few years.
