Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

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.

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.

Wine Varietal: Grenache


One of the most widely planted varieties in the world, Grenache is most well known as the base variety in wines from the Southern Rhone, such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Cotes-du-Rhone, and Gigondas. Grenache thrives in hot, arid climates all over the world particularly in the Mediterranean and Australia. Its origin is believed to be the Roussillon region of southern France (formerly Spain - where it is grown today and is known as Garnacha). Grenache is used in blends to round out Rhone-style reds to soften harsher varieties such as Syrah and Carignan. It is also used for rose wines. Typical descriptors for Grenache include raspberries, strawberries. black currants, black cherries, black olives, coffee, gingerbread, honey, leather, black pepper, tar, and herbes de Provence.
