Tasting notes "Fiddleneck": "New this year, the 2018 Grenache Fiddleneck Vineyard has a ruby core and slight garnet rim, expressing aromas of dusty rose petals, cherry blossom and elements of plum compote, dried orange zest, iodine and a soft stemmy essence. Medium to full-bodied, the wine displays a fresh, bright expression, firm mineral essence and spiced, red-fruited nature that sways with dusty red flowers and an undercurrent of red peppercorn. The wine ends a delightfully lingering finish with a subtly spiced petrichor note that brings me back for another sip. Just over 3,000 bottles were produced." – Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate (RP93+)
Tasting notes "Hors Categorie": "Bursting from the glass, the 2017 Syrah has a mineral essence with aromas of summer sausage, black raspberry, blackberry and dark plum with savory aromas of black pepper spices, potpourri, touches of cocoa powder and freshly roasted coffee bean. The wine has a focus and precision that presides with the top bottlings from around the world. Aromas of newly tilled earth explode from the glass with floral notions of lilac and rose nuances that waft with spicy tones. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is seamless, bounding forth with complexity and a velvety richness that is exponentially compounded by the power the resides at its core. Devastatingly gorgeous, it takes my breath away, as the wine ends with a tightly wound, complex expression that continues to evolve over the elongated finish. With only 1,800 bottles made, good luck finding some, for if you do, you will undoubtedly be the envy of your wine treasure-hunting friends." – Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate (RP98)
