Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
96 WA / 96 JD
A resounding success, the 2017 The Boy Grenache shines true with high-toned red berry fruit expressions on the mineral-laced nose, offering dusty florals and elements of juicy cherry, wild strawberries and raspberries. Medium-bodied, the wine is jam-packed with Grenache's full expression, offering elegance, robustness and roundness. It is full of flavor and is also food-friendly. The wine ends with a spicy impression that is slightly smoky and offers mineral tension on the long, drawn-out finish. Such power and finesse! My problem is that I would drink it too fast if left in my cellar.
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. Jeb Dunnuck
