I'm thinking Burgundy but I'm making Grenache. A bouquet of uncontainable layers. Black raspberry, Alpine strawberry, licorice stick, white pepper and dark cherry. An inviting, satiny palate: forest floor, fireplace ash, hung game, summer rain and finesse. That makes me a total believer. The best Boy ever.

Gorgeous framboise and ripe strawberry fruits as well as spice, herbes de Provence, and wildflower notes emerge from the 2018 Grenache The Boy Powerline Vineyard, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a seamless, elegant texture and outstanding length. This is another thrilling Grenache from this team that does everything right. It's hard to resist today yet should keep for 10-12 years in cold cellars.

Made from whole-cluster-pressed Grenache that rested for five months on the lees in neutral French oak puncheons, the 2018 The Boy has a vibrant, ruby core and a light hint of garnet at the rim. It displays a soft stemmy character, a vibrant, ripe red fruit essence and elements of dried orange peel and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is balanced on the palate with elements of baked earth, dusty rose petals and red cherry skin with hints of maple and white peppercorn. The Grenache concludes with a delightfully lingering finish and should continue to deliver pleasure throughout this decade. Just under 10,000 bottles were made.
