Langmeil 2018 Grenache 5th Wave 750ml
The complex, earthy 2018 Fifth Wave Grenache has replaced the red-berry flavors this bottling showed in 2014–2016 with deeper, darker fruit notes—instead of raspberries and strawberries, it's more blackberries and black cherries. But there's still an attractive flurry of dried spices and remarkable litheness and agility for such a full-bodied wine. The tannins are ripe and silky, almost diaphanous, yet sufficient (when combined with the wine's acidity) to give the wine shape and length on the finish.
Score: 93 points -- Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, 2021
