Very fresh on the nose with youthfully estery fruit and a strong floral top note. The alcohol is a bit noticeable here though there are lovely sp[ice tones on softly jammy fruit with just a touch of cool melon adding freshness. Front loaded with fruit and surprisingly crisp in the mouth with crunchy fruit and some nice earth and tree bark tones across the midpalate which set off the slightly jammy wild red berry fruits well. Good acid and just a touch of tannin with decent length and finishing with light spice notes and a gentle insinuation of vanilla. Well made and easy drinking. Biodynamic too! 87pts

    Winemaker's Notes:

    A wine that moves past the simple strawberry aromatics of many a new-world Grenache, and shows the more savory and spicy notes that are found in the great wines of the southern Rhone Valley. It is not the most tannic or darkest of wines, its appeal lies is in its velvety texture and seductive nose of spice, earth and fruit.
