Scores & Reviews
The 2020 Liminal Grenache is sourced from a .9-acre bush vine Grenache parcel at the top of the Northern slope on Red Mountain. This location produces very small, concentrated berries. The palate is rich and viscous with serious concentration and underlying finesse. The richness once on the mouth and its color is truly novel considering the varietal. Layers of bull's blood, iodine, white pepper, orange rind and generous red and dark fruits all parade on the palate. This is a very gratifying and heady wine that will easily cellar for another decade — but is nearly impossible to put down in its full-throttle youth. Give this an hour of air prior to savoring. Drink 2022-2034.

Aged 16 months in used French oak barrels, it displays a glistening neon ruby core with a blueish rim in the glass. Lovely notes of candied black cherry, red plum skin, pencil shavings, mountain sagebrush, iron ore, saline, and dried herbs, it delivers lush depth and structure on the palate that compliments the chewy tannins and citrusy acidity nicely. Still showing incredibly young, please give this a few years in the bottle before enjoying. Just 68 cases made. Highly recommended.

Sweetly perfumed and totally seductive, the 2020 Grenache High Canyon Series WeatherEye Vineyard, leaps from the glass with a mix of ripe strawberries, lavender and rubbed sage. It’s unapologetically ripe in style balanced by bright acidity, as a dense wave of ultra-ripe red and blue fruits cascades throughout. This leaves the palate stained in blue and purple-toned florals and confectionary spice, while finishing with admirable length. The 2020 Grenache is a hedonist’s delight.

The 2020 Grenache High Canyon comes all from Red Mountain and offers some wild strawberry and blueberry-like fruits as well as some chalky minerality and floral notes. It has the classic, firmer Grenache tannins as well as medium to full body. There are some subtle smoky notes on the finish, but as with all the wines here, it has lots to like.
