K Vintners 2017 The Boy Walla Walla Valley Grenache
100% Grenache | Alc: 14.5%
Walla Walla Valley, Columbia Valley, Washington
K Vintners 2017 The Boy Walla Walla Valley Grenache has a brilliant color and amazing nose. The entry is pure silk, red plum, cold ash, camphor and pine needles. It continues to unfold with complexity. Pain grille, warm earth, gun powder. Exotic. Satisfying. Profound.
“A resounding success, the 2017 The Boy Grenache shines true with high-toned red berry fruit expressions on the mineral-laced nose, offering dusty florals and elements of juicy cherry, wild strawberries and raspberries. Medium-bodied, the wine is jam-packed with Grenache’s full expression, offering elegance, robustness and roundness. It is full of flavor and is also food-friendly. The wine ends with a spicy impression that is slightly smoky and offers mineral tension on the long, drawn-out finish. Such power and finesse! My problem is that I would drink it too fast if left in my cellar.” 96 pts – Wine Advocate
“Made from 100% Powerline Vineyard (since 2015), the 2017 Grenache The Boy Powerline Vineyard sports a lighter ruby hue as well as Rayas-like notes of decayed flowers, kirsch liqueur, licorice, and cured meats. Seamless, medium-bodied, and beautifully polished, with fine tannins, it’s a stunning, Burgundian example of this variety to enjoy over the coming 15-20 years.” 96 pts – Jeb Dunnuck
“This is a really intense red with white pepper, meat, grilled meat and red fruit. Green cloves, too. Full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Partial whole-berry fermentation. Drink or hold.” 93 pts – James Suckling
