2016 K Vintners "The Boy" Walla Walla Valley Grenache

SKU #1418344 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark In the running for the best Grenache from Washington, the 2016 Grenache The Boy Powerline Vineyard is a single vineyard release from a site in the Walla Walla Valley and was brought up in neutral oak. It has a Rayas-like perfume of rose petals, black raspberries, cherries, spice, and smoked meat. This carries to a medium to full-bodied, thrilling textured, seamless Grenache that has a stacked mid-palate, no hard edges, and a great, great finish. Hats off to the team at K Vintners for this incredible Grenache! Inner quote mark (5/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark With sweet spiced cherries that fill the glass, the 2016 The Boy is open and enjoyable now, showing cinnamon and dusty licorice on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, the wine has a balanced structure on the palate with a soft sweetness to counter the tannins and acidity. It ends with a lingering finish of confectionary sugar and dusty Twizzlers. 1,138 cases produced. (AM) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Distinctive yet refined, with vivid raspberry, smoky meat and spicy orange compote aromas that lead to complex and rich flavors and polished tannins. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

K&L Notes

Wines of Substance is the new group identity for a number of Washington-based brands founded and owned by Charles Smith. Smith grew up in California and famously managed rock bands in Scandinavia for a number of years before returning to the States to work in the wine industry. He planted his first vines in the Walla Walla Valley AVA in 1999 and released the subsequent 330 cases of Syrah in 2001 under the label K Vintners before establishing his namesake brand in 2006. Winery note: "100% Grenache, Walla Walla Valley. Vibrant, transparent, exhilarating on many layers. Plum, stone, green olive. This wine unfolds with pain grillé, tobacco leaf, roasted earth as it continues on with subtle yet fragrant floral tones. Wrapped up in silky texture that continues without end. OH BOY … IT’S SO GOOD! - Charles Smith"
