2015 Horsepower "Sur Echalas Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Grenache

SKU #1352641 98 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Grenache Sur Echalas Vineyard is stunning, wafting from the glass with a captivating bouquet that features floral top notes of roses and peony, savory nuances of rich coniferous forest floor and bouillon, overlaying a sapid base of ripe cherry and strawberry. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, immensely intense and mouthwateringly savory, with incredible complexity and stony depth. The finish is long and saline. Though Baron's Cayuse Grenache is great this year, this wine is another step up. (WK) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The aromas are haunting, with notes of white and black pepper, peat, potpourri, green olive, orange blossom, grilled asparagus and smoked meat. The palate shows incredible texture and detail, but the story here is truly the finish—a full minute-plus investment worth every thrilling moment. It's hard to tell exactly when it stops. A complete mind- and palate-bending stunner—one of the defining wines of the vintage. *Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2018* (SS) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2015 Grenache Sur Echalas Vineyard is a classic expression of both the terroir and the variety. Black cherries, strawberries, ground pepper, and forest floor notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, silky Grenache that has incredible character and depth. Drink it over the coming decade.

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a very intense and powerful Grenache-based red with lots of meat, spice and plum character. Full and layered. Flavorful finish. Plenty of whole-berry character and stems. Inner quote mark (5/2018)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Musky, carnal aromas of raspberry, chocolate, smoke, brown sugar and minerals. Dense, thick and savory, offering flavors of charred dark berries, cherry and candied flowers. This full-flavored, even slightly aggressive Grenache finishes classically dry, with slowly mounting salty persistence. These vines yield about three clusters per plant--or one tons of fruit per acre. "It takes a lot of work to make this wine," noted Elizabeth Bourcier, who assists Christophe Baron on his Cayuse and Horsepower wines and is responsible for the No Girls bottlings. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Sleek and elegantly powerful, with expressive black raspberry, bacon fat and fresh pepper flavors that take on richness toward graceful tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (7/2018)
