Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2018 Grenache Paras Vineyard sails out of the glass with notions of kirsch, black raspberries and spice cake plus hints of smoked meats, garrigue, Sichuan pepper and underbrush in the background. Full-bodied, the palate is laden with perfumed red and black fruits, supported by soft, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, delivering a spicy kick on the finish.
