Opinion: I would buy this again.
Other Comments: This is the first time Cline has released a 100%Grenache which they usually blend it with their other reds ... Intense but well balanced ... like a Calder mobile in a hurricane ... somehow able to keep a lot of flavor and fruit under control and smooth... not a "big" wine, but one with depth ... closed-in when first opened it needs to be open for several hours for the magic to develop ... nice cherry and strawberry with a little mint julep in the background. Kind of steep for my wallet at $45, but certainly not a disappointment at that price.
