This unique parcel of Grenache, sourced from an old vineyard, has successfully endured eighteen months maturation in new French barrique. Sourced from the devigorated soils of western Seppeltsfield, Les Amis is a testament to what only the most fastidious farming can achieve~purity, intensity and finesse.Possessing a dense, saturated ruby/purple hue the Les Amis flaunts the concentration, poise and panache of which only the greatest terroirs are gifted. Revealing a savoury elegance in its youth, the Les Amis will continue to build in complexity for many years to come.

Wine AdvocateMedium deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Les Amis displays gorgeous kirsch and raspberry compote notes accented by potpourri and roses, baking spices, cloves and some meatiness with pepper. Ripe and rich, medium-firm, silky tannins frame a concentrated and layered palate through a long and refreshing finish. Seductive in its youth, it should drink best from 2014 to 2024+.

Wine SpectatorDark and superrich, with brown sugar-laden black cherry and spice flavors that explode into a cascade of gooeyness on the long finish. Not for the faint of heart, but very impressive. Grenache. Drink now through 2016. 118 cases imported.
