Superb crimson color with bluish hues. Deep and complex nose exhibiting wild strawberries and raspberry jam with blueberry accents. Rich and velvety, with complex flavors of blond tobacco, white pepper, clove and star anise. Great concentration of very fine tannins, giving this wine tremendous length and great aging potential.

The real superstar in the lineup is the 2013 Tenet GSM, which checks in as a mix of 40% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 25% Mourvedre that spent 12 months in neutral French oak. Ripe, voluptuous and thrillingly textured, this beauty boasts fabulous aromatics of red and black raspberries, melted licorice, pepper and assorted floral characteristics. These all come together nicely on the palate where the wine is full-bodied, has no hard edges, a big, layered mid-palate and blockbuster length. Count me impressed. This Chateauneuf du Pape look-alike will have a decade or more of longevity.

A blend of 40% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 25% Mourvèdre, all aged in neutral oak, this wine impresses with alluring aromas of ripe strawberry, clove, blueberry, coffee and spice. Flavors are rich and palate-coating while displaying balance and finesse, with a finish that lingers.

Focused and powerful, without extra weight, this offers a lithe and agile mouthful of blackberry, black cherry and licorice flavors, along with hints of black olive and smoky grilled pepper. A swarm of crunchy tannins wraps up the finish. This has presence and grace to match the power. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2017 through 2023. 968 cases made.
