Still quite young, but showing very well after decanting and having been open for 2 hours. The Grenache really comes through on the nose with lots raspberry and white pepper. On the palate, I get lots of raspberries, dried cranberries, licorice, some pepper, slate, minerality and a bit of cedar/pine. Silky tannins and a really nice finish. Though this weighs in at 15% alcohol, it is well integrated.
Really impressed with this wine and at about $24 you might not think of this as a value pick, but it is a lot of wine for the money. Recommended. Imported by Eric Solomon.
