Tasting notes
Big Grenache nose, super pretty palate. Moderate acidity, lots of fruit, better balance. Minerality shows on finish. Plenty of room to evolve further.

2009: 92 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: "Vivid ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of candied cherry, blackberry and incense, with a hint of star anise in the background. Juicy and taut on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering sappy red and dark berry flavors that take on weight with air. Finishes with gentle tannins, very good intensity and resonating florality."

2009: 90 Points - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator: "A rich, rounded, open style, with lushly layered fig sauce, macerated black currant and crushed black cherry fruit all laced with alluring black tea and roasted mesquite notes, which add length and grip on the finish. Accessible now, but should have some staying power too. Drink now through 2016."

Wine maker notes
Well-layered, with nice grip carrying sage, tobacco, fig paste, mulled black currant and blackberry fruit, followed by a long, charred apple wood- and mineral-filled finish, where this stays bright and tangy. Yet there's impressive range and density for the vintage.
