Always a charmer, the 2016 Beguiling is as rich as it is complex, with dark cherry and hints of cranberry making their home in a copia of wild florals and herbs. From the core, its juicy freshness rides along an impressive wave of acidity which provides balance to the weight of this powerful, yet beautifully finessed wine. On the finish, there is a resurgence of fruit and engulfing tannin, that will keep not only your palate, but all your senses fully engaged with every sip.

The Grenache-dominated 2016 Beguiling (there's 14% Syrah) spent 22 months in barrels prior to bottling. It boasts a ripe, flamboyant bouquet of blueberries, wild strawberries, peppery herbs, and crushed rock-like minerality. Deep, full-bodied, and seamless on the palate, with ultra-fine tannins, it has remarkable purity and elegance as well as an opulence and sexiness that needs to be tasted to be believed.

Shimmering ruby. Spice-accented red and dark berries, potpourri, incense, vanilla and cola qualities on the highly perfumed nose. Rich yet also energetic on the palate, offering appealingly sweet black raspberry, cherry and boysenberry flavors that slowly firm up on the back half. Fine-grained tannins sneak in on the impressively long finish, adding shape and subtle grip to lingering red fruit liqueur and spicecake notes. 60% new French oak.

The 2016 Beguiling is a blend of 86% Grenache and 14% Syrah aged 19 months in 60% new oak. Medium ruby-purple in the glass, it's scented of roasted plum, crushed blackcurrants, iron, cranberry sauce and red berry preserves accented by garrigue and charcuterie. The medium-bodied palate is silky and layered with sturdy, lightly chalky tannins and a long, fresh finish. This is a bigger, riper style but elegantly crafted and still light on its feet.

Deep and rich red-fruit aromas meet with star anise spice and darker black-plum touches on the nose of this bottling, which is boosted with 14% Syrah. Mouthcoating tannins leap onto the palate, where the rich but not overripe red-fruit flavors are lifted by fennel pollen and strong acidity.
