2016 Cayuse God Only Knows GrenacheUdsolgt
Always in the running for the best Grenache made in the United States, the 2016 God Only Knows is another terrific example of the cuvée. Sporting a medium ruby color and complex notes of herbes de Provence, forest floor, decaying flowers, and assorted red and black fruits, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, light, silky tannin, and a great finish. Again, it’s the balance and seamlessness that sets this apart.

Insanely aromatic notes of potpourri, raspberry, white pepper, soot, funk and earth are followed by bright, fresh, focused, rich fruit and savory flavors. It shows a sense of delicacy and intensity with unparalleled balance. There is no end to the finish. What makes this Grenache-driven wine so extraordinary? God only knows. Best from 2023–2027.
