This Grenache is rather light, I would say pale ruby in the glass. The nose has medium intensity aromas of raspberry, red cherry, violets, pomegranate and dried spices. The palate is dry and lively with ripe red fruit, medium acidity, lithe tannins and a medium body. The floral and spice components are not as pronounced on the palate but I now get some charred wood and rooibos tea instead. The finish is medium in length and a touch tart, refreshing. I like this $35 effort and give it 93 points and 5 stars. It will drink well now and age gracefully till 2030. Pair with lighter meat dishes or even poultry. Salut….
