Brilliant color and amazing nose. The entry is pure silk, red plum, cold ash, camphor and pine needles. It continues to unfold with complexity. Pain grillé, warm earth, gun powder. Exotic. Satisfying. Profound.

Made from 100% Powerline Vineyard (since 2015), the 2017 Grenache The Boy Powerline Vineyard sports a lighter ruby hue as well as Rayas-like notes of decayed flowers, kirsch liqueur, licorice, and cured meats. Seamless, medium-bodied, and beautifully polished, with fine tannins, it's a stunning, Burgundian example of this variety to enjoy over the coming 15-20 years. There are a little over 1,000 cases produced.

Light-medium red with a pale rim. Spicy red berries, red cherry, Espelette pepper and savory minerality on the nose. A bit less green, wild and olive-y than the 2016 version, this glossy, fine-grained midweight conveys modest nuance to its red fruit and spice flavors. Finishes classically dry, with suave, fine-grained tannins and slowly building length. This rather polite Grenache may have more energy to support aging than its 2016 predecessor, but will it ever be as interesting or wild?
