Big, alcoholic, and really pricey Grenache. A lot of heat from the alcohol here. Flavors of kirsch and raspberry. Liqueur-like mouth feel, not a lot of finesse. Potent and flavorful, but I found it somewhat one-dimensional and without the overall balance required to support a wine that has about two percent too much alcohol. - HK 2013-10-27
