Description

"...positively stellar. Deep, layered and beautifully resonant in the glass, the 2017 is so expressive today. The finish alone is striking, but really everything about the 2017 elevates it to one of the most successful wines of the year." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"...smoking good, with meaty, gamey, peppery notes as well as lots of dark fruits, medium body, light, silky tannins, and a terrific sense of elegance. The Syrah is front and center today, yet the Grenache keeps it supple and beautifully textured. It’s going to evolve for 7-8 years or more." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

"...gamy and tarry on the nose, with smoked boysenberry-fruit aromas. More exotic purple-fruit touches show on the sip, where smoked meat and peppercorn flavors also arise. It needs a bit more time to fully blossom." ~ Wine Enthusiast
