Transparent and pure are the first words that come to mind when tasting this wine. Then onto spice, tobacco, black leather, and white pepper. A full palate that comes together to an elegant and ethereal finish.
The Wine Advocate - "There's 300 cases of the potentially profound 2014 The Boy, which is mostly Grenache from the Powerline Vineyard in Walla Walla. Fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged in neutral oak, it offers sensational ripeness and depth in its meaty, olive, pepper, currant and kirsch scented bouquet. This gives way to a massive, concentrated and voluptuously textured Grenache that has a great mid-palate, ripe tannin and a finish that just won't quite. Range: 95-97"
Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Bright, moderately saturated red with a palish rim. Red cherry, red berry and smoked meat aromas show both liqueur-like and herbal nuances, suggesting a wide range of ripeness. Ripe, smooth and creamy on the palate, with a smoky, meaty quality to the raspberry fruit. Not the last word in complexity or definition but creamy, smoky and saline in an Old World way. I like this wine's fine-grained texture, suave tannins and persistence. This is 100% Grenache for the first time."
