The 2011 Grenache God Only Knows is shockingly good in the vintage. Sporting a big, masculine profile, with notions of lite gunpowder, ground pepper, herbs and wild strawberry and blackberry fruit, it flows onto the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a full, rich mid-palate and a healthy dose of tannin that will require short-term cellaring to integrate. This knockout Grenache will be at its finest from 2016-2026. (JD)
Intensely aromatic, this carries a wealth of layered flavors consistent with past vintages. Umami, sea salt, mineral and Provençal herbs comingle, with a rich component of raspberry, plum and cherry compôte. More layers appear through the finish, with orange liqueur and a whiff of tanned leather. *Cellar Selection* (PG)
Supple, velvety, expressive and complex, layered with rocky minerality and beautifully expressive plum and guava fruit, deftly balanced to rocket through the long and vivid finish. Drink now through 2025. (HS)
Bright medium red. Wildly complex scents of red berries, smoked meat, iron, orange peel, flowers, pepper and olive tapenade. Fat, silky and pure, and not at all overly sweet, with distinctly soil-driven, Old World flavors of pureed wild strawberry, minerals, garrigue, truffle and smoke. A sexy carnal quality contributes to this wonderfully smooth wine’s appeal. Less liqueur-like than the typical ripe-year Chateauneuf du Pape; in fact, this wine hints at a tangy pinot quality. Finishes with lush, noble tannins and outstanding subtle length. (ST)
Deep ruby. Fragrant, a little smoky, cherry fruit. Elegant, relatively light-bodied despite the 13.9% alcohol. It lifts out of the glass. Beautifully dry and almost sour, like tiny wild berries. Fine, dry texture. Definitely more site than variety showing here. 17/20 points. (JH)
