Structured and backward, the 2012 Grenache God Only Knows Armada Vineyard offers lots of framboise, black cherries, bouquet garni and spice to go with a full-bodied, seamless, elegant feel on the palate. It picks up more and more tannin with time in the glass, and needs 3-4 years of cellaring, but should keep for 15 years or more. Drink through 2027. (JD)
It takes some time to open up but when it does, this wine reveals perfumed aromas of potpourri, green olive, savory spices, peat, pepper and mineral. The palate is equal parts light and dense with almost chewy, savory flavors that won’t quit. *#8 of the Top Wines of 2015* (SS)
Supple and ripe, with a strong tapenade note weaving through the cherry and pomegranate flavors, coming together harmoniously on the plush, expressive finish. Not heavy, but has plenty to offer. (HS)
Medium bright red. Wonderfully perfumed aromas of ripe raspberry, kirsch, garrigue and potpourri, complicated by a saline element. Leanish, penetrating flavors of purple fruits lifted by violet; not at all a red fruit style of Grenache. Quite tightly wound and firmly tannic, with a finishing perfume that struck me as Burgundian.
