Andremily - Grenache 2020 (750ml)
Wine Advocate 97 points
"The 2020 Grenache is blended with 12% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah. It comes predominantly from Andremily's new Slide Hill estate, plus the Alta Mesa Vineyard and Larner Vineyard in Santa Barbara County and G2 vineyard in Paso Robles. It was vinified using 70% whole clusters, matured for around 21 months in 50% new French barriques and aged an additional year in bottle before release. It has youthfully dense blueberry, baked plum, cherry fruit and slowly opening accents of cardamom, lilac and olive. The full-bodied palate features highly concentrated, enveloping fruit, abundant yet pixelated tannins and just enough freshness to highlight alluring floral and spice tones on the long finish. 400 cases and a few magnums were produced."

"The 2020 Grenache comes in as 78% Grenache, 12% Mourvèdre, and 10% Syrah, from a handful of sites (Slide Hill, Alta Mesa, Larner, and G2), that was only 30% destemmed and is still aging in 50% new barrels. Blackberries, licorice, roasted herbs, mulled black cherries, and chocolate all define the aromatics, and it's gorgeous on the palate, with full-bodied richness, a round, lush mouthfeel, sweet tannins, and a great finish. It's another hedonistic, balanced, gorgeous wine from Jim.This was another brilliant lineup from Jim Binns. The 2019s here are easily the finest I’ve ever tasted, and the 2020s don’t appear to be far behind, although they bring a touch more oomph compared to the powerful, yet elegant 2019s."
