Drink it now or cellar for up to 10 years. It is recommended to decant it for half an hour.

The Department 66 estate is located just two hours north of Barcelona in Roussillon, France. Using vines between 80 and 100 years old, Dave Phinney produces red and white wines from Grenache, Syrah, Carignano and Mourvèdre that combine the warmth and minerality of the South of France with the power of Napa Valley.

The cult wine Others Grenache, is a modern wine, where the know-how of Dave Phinney blends harmoniously with the unique terroir of the estate. From this alliance comes an authentic great Grenache-based wine, able to compete with any competitor in its category. It is a reflection of this unique subsoil, which retains heat well but contains few organic nutrients.

The wine displays a saturated purple color. The nose reveals a sumptuous scent of blackberries on notes of chocolate, with nuts and a breath of tobacco, with nuances of plum jam, and gingerbread. This is an incredibly soft Grenache in the mouth. It is juicy, fruity, and complex, and despite its richness it gives an exceptional pleasure to the taste. Very elegant on the finish with the typical warmth of the Maury. Perfect with veal cheek, Chateaubriand, a tournedos Rossini, or a lamb shank with rosemary.
