"The 2015 Grenache is a big, sweet, fruit-bomb beauty that has real class and complexity. Made with 100% stems and offering incredible spice, white pepper, stems, and sweet cherry fruit, it’s medium to full-bodied, has terrific mid-palate depth (which is lacking in too many New World Grenaches), and a great finish. Give it a year or three and enjoy over the following decade."

"Pale garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Grenache reveals an earthy/savory nose of tapenade, dried herbs and forest floor over a core of warm red currants, cranberry sauce and black raspberries. Full-bodied, the palate features a wonderfully savory character with a pretty red fruit and perfumed core, supported by firm, chewy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long with a lovely herbal lift. 320 cases produced."

"The 2015 Grenache is gorgeous in the way it captures the radiance of the vintage while expressing so much varietal character. Vinification with 100% whole clusters brings out a range of floral and red-stone fruit. Although the Cabernet Sauvignon wines get most of the attention at Outpost, the Grenache remains one of the most distinctive wines in the range."
