Additional comments: Overall, a good refreshing blend. Not as exciting as the previous vintage (2012). Looks like the overall blend component (ratios of each grape) is different and probably why such a variation. The favor profile is similar but not as bold and expressive as before. The previous blend had 48% Grenache Blanc, double the percentage in this vintage, perhaps that was more my calling. More wine specs can be found HERE
