100% Grenache "Old Vines" (85-105 years old)
Bright and vibrant, medium red colored; charming, fresh and seductive
aromas of ripe cherries and red berries along with the floral nuances of
roses and wild herbs. Complex but fine and sophisticated, perfumed. In
the mouth full-bodied, complex, almost eccentric, and has a seductive
spirit. It is subtle, aristocratic, introverted, and unique, much like
great Burgundies and Northern Rhone Hermitage! The oak aging perfectly
provides the additional aromatic layers of delicately roasted coffee and
a toasted/smoky note. The mouth texture is intense and viscous due to
its high natural glycerin level, however it's still nicely fresh and
vibrant with lively acidity, a delicate sweetness, and great mouth feel.
Aftertaste shows a substantial, but never aggressive crispy tannin
structure which will allow this wine to age perfectly over the next 15
years. Very good length, an explosive aftertaste and fine red fruit
which come through fully and elegantly!
