    Baron's 2008 Grenache Armada Vineyard God Only Knows displays delectable scents and luscious palate presence of lightly-cooked strawberry and plum laced with nut oils and shadowed by plum and herb distillates. Seamlessly polished, almost velvety and glycerol-rich as well as sweetly ripe, this, nonetheless, projects a torrent of primary fruit juiciness along with levity and energy. Saliva-inducing salinity along with piquant fruit pit, and iodine accents add riveting counterpoint to a finish of prodigious length that manages to simultaneously sooth and stimulate. I would expect this to reward attention for at least another decade.

    Medium red. Exotic aromas of red fruits and spices. Supersweet and rich, with powerful red fruit flavors. Silky and seamless wine, with dense, deep strawberry and pepper flavors showing a bit less nuance than the outstanding syrah made from the same vineyard. Finishes fat and long, with smooth tannins and a gamey nuance.

    Supple, open-textured and distinctive for its black olive, pepper and rhubarb flavors, lingering on the spicy finish.

    Took 2.5 days for this guy to open up. The nose was always there but the fruit didn't really come out until day 3. Sweet nose of rd fruits and red licorice, with a similar palate, which included earthy components, such as wet stones and earth. A good deal of tannin present here as well.
