Kirsch, kirsch and more kirsch is all over the place in this forward, medium bodied wine, that also serves up notes of thyme and pepper. This is already drinking well, so enjoy it while waiting for the 15 and 16 to develop.

Using 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and 15% Syrah produced a wine with sweet red fruits, garrigue, pepper and spice, turning this into a silky, forward, charmer.

From 100% old vine Grenache, the wine is balanced and elegant, with soft, layers of ripe red berries that shine through. This is very sweet and refined.

Medium bodied, with garrigue and fresh, sweet red berries in the nose, the wine is soft, textured, the fruit is ripe and as it’s already open, it’s delicious today. From 70% Grenache and assorted varieties, the wine reached 15% ABV with no sensation of heat.

This bottle was finished far too quickly. With its forward, luscious character, ripe, sweet, cherries and kirsch, pepper, thyme, garrigue, and silky textures, it's easy to understand why.

Close to fully mature, lots of cherries, earth, thyme and spice on the nose. Medium/full bodied, with a soft, sweet, black raspberry finish.

Forward, open and expressing its kirsch, licorice, earth and black cherry core, the wine is plush, round and inviting, finishing with sweet, ripe, spicy black raspberries. This is probably not a wine to age in the hopes its going to make old bones. It's really drinking nice tonight with dinner.

Fully mature, the fruit has faded since it was first released. Still, there is a sweet, kirsch, pepper, earth and garrigue profile, along with silky textures that make this a lot of fin to drink.
