2016 Charles Smith K Vintners The Boy Grenache, Walla Walla Valley, USA
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.
93 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Distinctive yet refined, with vivid raspberry, smoky meat and spicy orange compote aromas that lead to complex and rich flavors and polished tannins.
