Aaron:  An oaky nose with subdued spice introduced this interesting bottle.  I was overwhelmed with blueberry flavor which was extremely smooth.  An overall pleasant bottle with lots of sweet notes, particularly honey, this does provide a quick punch in the back of your throat to make you drink it slowly – good thing too because it’s good enough to make you want to gulp.  90 points

Teri: Pouring into the glass you will notice a beautiful dark ruby color on this Spanish grenache. I taste flavors of young plum, with strong earthy undertones and vanilla on the finish. The wine is medium bodied with just a hint of spice and vanilla on the very long finish. 88 points
