This is a full bodied, very ripe and rich, almost Aussie-like grenache with a very floral violet, plummy nose caked...

An upbeat, savory and very friendly grenache oozing with commercial appeal. Oak treatment is a touch heavy handed but...

Don't be deceived by the expensive, heavy bottle - this is basic commercial wine. While the nose delivers some...

This is one of the excellent wines and values I had the pleasure to enjoy lately. I have pick-up a bottle from LCBO on a Friday evening in February 2013 to drink next day with my friends for my birthday. All my friends were amazed with this wine. I have picked-up a case so I can delight my family and friends which I did today again.

Definitely grabbing another bottle of this to lay down for a couple years. Great example of Terroir driven Garnacha that's not over extracted or made into a fruit bomb style. Deep ruby, with subtle notes of raspberry, spice and toast on the nose. After couple hours of decanting, more earth, mineral, clove, licorice and red berry aromas emerge. Medium plus body with youthful tannin, some fruit plushness in the middle and great acid that begs for food. Drink now until 2018. Tasted Feb '13.

There's complex and then there's all-over-the-place, there's luscious and then there's syrupy, and this forced, overdone Garnacha is the latter of both; full and rich, and nicely fragrant, with a ton of vanilla and oak, along with dark fruit, leather, winter spice, and, later, bretty earthiness, but lacking finesse and unity; very dry on the finish, but at times it's like drinking a gooey raspberry candy despite the presence of interesting possibilities, the whole less than the sum of its parts.
