Outer quote mark Gorgeous framboise and ripe strawberry fruits as well as spice, herbes de Provence, and wildflower notes emerge from the 2018 Grenache The Boy Powerline Vineyard, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a seamless, elegant texture and outstanding length. This is another thrilling Grenache from this team that does everything right. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A lovely Grenache with ripe strawberry, white pepper and hints of hazelnut on both the nose and palate. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a spicy finish. 100% whole cluster. No new oak. So yummy. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Entirely aged in neutral oak, the 2018 Grenache The Boy has been sourced from the estate’s Powerline vineyard since 2014. Showing a deeper core now than when it came from the River Rock vineyard, this offers beautiful wet stone and red floral tones alongside orange rind and suggestions of green olive tapenade.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Made from whole-cluster-pressed Grenache that rested for five months on the lees in neutral French oak puncheons, the 2018 The Boy has a vibrant, ruby core and a light hint of garnet at the rim. It displays a soft stemmy character, a vibrant, ripe red fruit essence and elements of dried orange peel and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is balanced on the palate with elements of baked earth, dusty rose petals and red cherry skin with hints of maple and white peppercorn. (AM) Inner quote mark (7/2021)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Sinewy and well-delineated, with expressive blackberry, bacon fat and warm gravel accents that build toward medium-grained tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (10/2021)
