Station Plaza WineWe opened a bottle at the SPW Tasting Bar and every customer that tasted it bought one. Sam wanted to give it a 96 but settled on 95 SPW. Its an amazing expression of Grenache, actually blind tasted you may think its from Paso Robles. Has a nice new world vibrancy and explosive fruit that has a 30 second finish and leaves you wanting more. - Kevin
Wine AdvocateA blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and a splash of Carignan, the 2014 Cotes Catalanes Grenache D66 IGP spent ten months in roughly 30% new barrels. This inky colored, downright sexy 2014 offers terrific notes of blueberries, blackberries, violets and chalky minerality. Big, concentrated and textured, yet still playing in the more elegant style of the 2014 vintage, this beauty will drink well for a decade.
