Review: 2017 Grenache & 2016 Eighteen Sixty-One

92 Points: 2017 Grenache, El Dorado

Editor’s Choice

“Attractive but subtle spices brighten the red cherry and black plum notes in this full-bodied and firmly structured wine. Hints of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg emerge in the aromas and stay buzzing through the concentrated palate and on to the finish.”

92 Points: 2016 Eighteen Sixty-One

“Intricately woven, complex flavors are braced by firm tannins and bright acidity in this Rhône-style red blend. It is full in body without being fat, blending earthy, meaty flavors with black pepper, blackberry and roasted plum for a subtle but compelling outcome.”
