The nose is initially quite dark and brooding. Black forest berries, woody spices and soil like notes slowly give way to brighter undertones of raspberry, blueberry and florals. The palate tells a slightly different story with a raft of red fruit characters such as raspberry and stewed rhubarb paired with an almost cranberry like acidity. The tannins are verging on gritty, in a tantalizing sense. This appealing combination of red fruits, crisp acidity and vibrant tannin gives an overall impression of freshness and youth, and indicates that this wine will evolve elegantly over the next 5 to 8 years, growing in richness, roundness and complexity as it does so.

Pale to medium garnet colored, the 2013 The Custodian Grenache has a full-on fruity nose of baked cherries and raspberry preserves with hints of eucalyptus, cracked pepper and licorice. The medium-bodied palate is soft and uncomplicated, with a good amount of juicy berry flavors and pleasant savory element to boot.
