The Strapper fits the bill with its fresh, wild, gregarious and excitable fruit matched by acidity in this grenache,...

This is an easy drinking wine. The tannin's are very smooth. The nose was filled with berries. Through the evening, the wine did not open up much more then when I first opened it so need to decant. I am giving this an 89 only because it was not as complexed as I would have liked, but it is still a solid wine. Great for under $20
