Product Overview

The 2018 K Vintners The Boy Grenache is a single-vineyard estate wine from the heart of Walla Walla Valley in Washington. The long, dry 2018 vintage enabled the growers to let the fruit hang to full ripeness without sacrificing acidity or increasing sugars. The bouquet of black raspberry, strawberry, licorice, white pepper, and dark cherry leads to an inviting, satiny palate of dark fruits, forest floor, fireplace ash, and wild game. "The BEST Boy ever," says the winemaker!

Varietal Composition: 100% Grenache
Appellation: Walla Walla Valley AVA
Vineyard: Powerline Estate Vineyard
Aging: 18 months on lees in neutral French oak puncheons
Winemaker: Charles Smith

94 Points - Vinous
"Entirely aged in neutral oak, the 2018 Grenache The Boy has been sourced from the estate’s Powerline vineyard since 2014. Showing a deeper core now than when it came from the River Rock vineyard, this offers beautiful wet stone and red floral tones alongside orange rind and suggestions of green olive tapenade. Fresh and lively with plenty of finesse, a soft texture and stony character, this is beautiful wine to enjoy now but will also evolve well over the next 8-10 years." -OB, Mar/2022

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"Made from whole-cluster-pressed Grenache that rested for five months on the lees in neutral French oak puncheons, the 2018 The Boy has a vibrant, ruby core and a light hint of garnet at the rim. It displays a soft stemmy character, a vibrant, ripe red fruit essence and elements of dried orange peel and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is balanced on the palate with elements of baked earth, dusty rose petals and red cherry skin with hints of maple and white peppercorn. The Grenache concludes with a delightfully lingering finish and should continue to deliver pleasure throughout this decade. Just under 10,000 bottles were made." -AM, 7/8/21
