"The 2017 Beyond Category is made up of 48% Tempranillo, 26% Graciano, 20% Grenache and 6% Carignan. It's expected to age a bit longer this vintage, for 27 months. This will be blended and bottled in early 2020. Opaque ruby-purple, it explodes from the glass with bold scents of crème de cassis, boysenberry and blueberry jam, molten chocolate, licorice, lilacs, toasted coconut and a faint waft of tapenade and grilled meat. The medium to full-bodied palate is packed with flavor but surprisingly light on its feet, with a pixelated frame and seamless freshness, finishing very long, layered and lifted."

"Made up of 35% Syrah, 33% Grenache and 32% Mourvèdre aged 19 months in 40% new oak, the 2017 Sagacious has a medium to deep ruby-purple color and is youthfully mute to begin. With time in the glass, the nose blossoms to marionberries, boysenberries and cranberry preserves with accents of rhubarb, blood orange, autumn leaves, saline, cinnamon stick and amaro. Medium-bodied with dense fruit taking its time to unfurl, it has a grainy frame and juicy freshness with a long, orange- and flower-laced finish. This will benefit from another few years in bottle."
