Torbreck Vintners Les Amis Grenache 2005

$155

The 2005 Les Amis, sourced from a 100+-year-old vineyard, is 100% Grenache aged for 18 months in new oak. Remarkably fragrant, it emits full-throttle aromas of spice box, kirsch, wild raspberry, and blackberry liqueur. Plush on the palate, it reveals layers of rich, red and black berry flavors, ripe tannin, and a 60-second, pure finish. Although it can be admired now, the wine merits 6-8 years of further bottle aging to reveal all of its splendors. This sensational effort could easily masquerade as Pegau Cuvee de Capo on human growth hormone. Robert Parker

A bit of lift aromatically. Right on point.

Beautiful bright ripen black and red fruit with thick sweet mouth feel. Almost not Grenache like mouthfeel until you smell the inky licorice aroma

Ooh daddy. Cherry, Dunlop, mushroom ragu, God’s own mulberry bush. This is a big boy wine and I am a very little boy. Exquisite. Transcendent. A joy.

David Powell at his best. Great perfume nose with tons of red fruit. Australian old vine granache from Barossa. Hard to beat
