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.

Pinpoint in focus and detailed, with expressive raspberry, smoked meat, orange peel and crushed rock accents that build rich savoriness on a lingering finish. Drink now through 2028. 1,023 cases made.

Modestly saturated medium red with faint amber at the rim. Wild, complex scents of red cherry, strawberry, olive tapenade, tomato leaf and aged balsamico; smells ready to go. Plush and thick in the mouth, but with sexy herbal lift to the flavors of wild strawberry, smoked meat, pepper, green olive and spices. With its combination of sweetness, umami character and earthy undertones, this wine would pair well with cured meats. Finishes with a very smooth dusting of tannins. Distinctly idiosyncratic but seamless wine with easy drinkability.
