This is 95% Grenache. Ruby/purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with black cherries, cherries, char and floral notes. Medium to full bodied. Light tannins. Great texture. On the palate, this has lovely black cherry fruit, some cherries and spice. Nice finish. This seems to be about at peak at this point. It should drink well for another five to eight years, but won't get better. Nice on its own, this will be better with food. A nice wine with beef stew.
