($93; 100% grenache) Deep red. Musky cherry and blackcurrant aromas are complicated by sassafras, garrigue and anise. Saturates the palate with suave red and dark berry preserve flavors, hints of candied licorice and lavender, and velvety tannins. Seems to gain sweetness on the finish, which is striking for its mix of power and balance. There's nothing hard about this.

Excellent bottle. Rich nose with strong dried fruit and barnyard notes as well as some smoke and salinity. Nice lengthy finish with satisfying grip.

Moderate fruit, raspberry, woody, with pretty tough tannin profile. Lots of backbone and will last for years to come. Tasted better next day.
