The bouquet of this wine is extremely explosive and shows brilliant red fruit aromas. Watermelon, fresh strawberries, and hints of vanilla are just some of the aromas I picked out that were very enjoyable. On the palate this wine touches down with massive strawberry notes accompanied by some really interesting cotton candy-like flavors and some very nice minerality too.
The wine appears to have a touch of residual sugar or seems to be sweet. This could be the case, and the wine could have a touch of sugar left in it after fermentation, or it could be a false sense of sweetness brought on by the high alcohol content. The wine comes in at around 15.5% alcohol and it does show a bit on the palate but this didn't ruin the experience of this blockbuster effort. This is the biggest, most explosive Grenache I have tasted in some time. The finish goes on for days! 91 points
