Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 96 points

There are 600 six packs of the 2006 Grenache. Made from a tiny yielding clone, it is a textbook Grenache that ranks alongside Sine Qua Non?s Grenache as the two finest made in California. A dense purple hue is accompanied by a glorious nose of kirsch liqueur interwoven with licorice, forest floor, pepper, and spice. It possesses outstanding stuffing, a tremendous, full-bodied mouthfeel, and moderate tannin. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and enjoy it over the following 12-15 years.

Wine Spectator: 96 points

Dark, rich and savory, this is intense and full-bodied, delivering concentrated layers of blackberry, wild berry and boysenberry flavors that are pure and focused. Ends with fleshy tannins. Massive for Grenache. Drink now through 2015. 500 cases made. ?JL
