Lurid ruby. Lively red fruit and floral aromas are complemented by suggestions of smoky minerals and a hint of vanilla. Sappy and seamless in texture, offering juicy red berry, bitter cherry and rose pastille flavors that open up steadily with air. Finishes long and smooth, displaying subtle tannins and an echo of candied flowers.

For a tad more money, the 2014 Breca, which is 100% bush-vine Grenache planted 1900-1940, is another take on this fabulous grape that flourishes in many areas of Spain as well as Southern France. This wine spent 18 months sur lie in 500- to 600-liter French demi-muids. A deep ruby/plum color offers up notes of jammy strawberries, black cherries, raspberries, licorice, underbrush and lavender. It is deep, ripe, medium to full-bodied, heady (must be 14.5-15% natural alcohol) with a long, juicy finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
