    The Cayuse God Only Knows Armada Vineyard Grenache 2019, a testament to winemaker Christophe Baron’s artistry, emerges as a symphony of flavors and aromas that mesmerize the senses. A blend that includes a small portion of Syrah sourced entirely from the Armada Vineyard, this vintage exemplifies the essence of refinement and power.

    Owen Bargreen’s 99 points encapsulate the Grenache’s ebullient charm. Mandarin orange rind, seaweed, Yakima cherry puree, and pretty strawberry tones intertwine on the nose. The palate, seamless and soft, unveils serious minerality. With bright red fruits and kumquat rind accents, this Grenache, according to Bargreen, is truly one of a kind.

    International Wine Report’s 97 points extol the wine’s stunning nature. Gorgeous aromas of raspberries and dark cherries intermingle with dried florals, wet stones, and spices. A silky texture glides seamlessly across the palate, embodying balance, finesse, and incredible freshness that persists through the precise finish.

    Jeb Dunnuck’s 96 points unveil a wine with a style entirely its own. A kaleidoscope-like bouquet of ripe cherries, blackberries, forest floor, spring flowers, and charcoal dances on the palate. A hypothetical blend of a Grand Cru from the Cote de Nuits and a 100% Grenache Chateauneuf, it promises a medium-bodied richness, a silky, seamless mouthfeel, perfect balance, and a great finish.

    James Suckling’s 96 points celebrate the plump red fruit aromas accented by herbs and spice. Balanced acidity carries the fruit effortlessly, accompanied by notes of dried roses and violets.

    Decanter’s 96 points highlight the wine’s charming character, full-bodied with sweet raspberry fruit and controlled whole-bunch elements.

    Vinous’ 95 points encapsulate the wine’s herbal-tea-like quality, supple yet pure style, balanced inner sweetness, and light tannic tug, resulting in a beautifully framed red.

    The Wine Advocate’s 94 points acknowledge the wine’s potpourri aromas and fine mineral tension, complemented by a seductive red cherry skin essence over the lingering, spicy finish.

    The Cayuse God Only Knows Armada Vineyard Grenache 2019 is a masterpiece that invites exploration, a union of refinement and complexity that captures the heart of its origin.

    1. JD

      The 2019 God Only Knows is another gorgeous example of this wine that has a style all its own. Revealing a translucent ruby hue as well as a kaleidoscope-like bouquet of ripe cherries, blackberries, forest floor, spring flowers, and charcoal, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a silky, seamless mouthfeel, perfect balance, and a great finish. This exotic, perfumed Grenache is a hypothetical mix of a Grand Cru from the Côte de Nuits and a 100% Grenache Châteauneuf from sandy soils. It should cruise in the cellar for 10-15 years.

      Aromas of plump red fruit with a wonderful array of herbs and spice. Medium-bodied with bright, well-balanced acidity that carries the fruit effortlessly. Refreshing, fine tannins. So much complexity coming from the ground and whole spices. I like the note of dried roses and violets. A total delight. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

    3. OB

      One of the great Grenache wines of North America, the ebullient 2019 God Only Knows has a small portion of Syrah blended in, as this was entirely sourced from the Armada Vineyard. Showing a dark core once in the glass, the captivating aromatics bring you back to the glass. Mandarin orange rind dusted seaweed, flint, Yakima cherry puree and pretty strawberry tones combine with lighter red florals on the nose. The palate is utterly seamless and soft once on the mouth, with serious minerality… Very stony and finishing long with bright red fruits and kumquat rind accents, this dizzying Grenache is truly one of a kind. Enjoy this beauty over the next decade and give this at least 30 minutes of air if savoring now. Drink 2022-2031.

    Bursting with aromas of potpourri with a dusty, red-fruited essence of wild strawberries, savory herbs and red and black spice, the 2019 Grenache God Only Knows Armada Vineyard is an instant success. Medium-bodied, the palate is fresh with a fine mineral tension that gives way to a firm tannic edge before gliding to a seductive, red cherry skin essence over the lingering, spicy finish. Only 223 cases were produced. I'm always a sucker for this bottling

    Full-bodied, with plentiful sweet raspberry fruit. The whole-bunch element is controlled here, it's embedded into the wine and not excessive. Fresh herbal notes on the nose and palate, this is tightly wound for now but highly promising. Well balanced, not huge or massively concentrated – expect a charming, unoaked wine without excessive alcohol. Very good.

    International Wine Report
    Once again, a stunning wine from Christophe Baron… This immediately grabs your attention with its absolutely gorgeous aromas of raspberries and dark cherries which come together with dried florals, wet stones, spices and hints of grilled herbs all coming together in the glass. This exudes class and refinement, as it possesses a wonderful silky texture that glides seamlessly across the palate. It continues to thoroughly impress as it displays remarkable overall balance and finesse, along with incredible freshness that persists all the way through the precise finish. This is already utterly captivating in its youth; however, it should go on to age beautifully over the course of the next decade and beyond.

    Vinous
    The 2019 Red Wine God Only Knows is composed primarily from Grenache and is refined for 21 months in neutral French demi-muids and foudre. There is an almost-herbal-tea-like quality to the nose, distinctly savory yet spicy, with dusty floral tones and hints of olive offset by a spritz of citrus. This washes across the palate with ease, supple yet pure in style, with a balanced inner sweetness contrasted by a salty flourish and juicy acidity that maintains lovely energy. Saline-minerals come forward through the finale, combined with black currants and white pepper, as a light tannic tug on the senses frames this red beautifully.
