94 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Beguiling is made up of 82% Grenache and 18% Syrah, the highest proportion of Syrah ever for this wine. The wine aged 19 months in 30% new oak. It has a medium ruby-purple color and lifted aromatics of cranberry jelly, blackberry jam, red and black currants, salami and pepper with touches of bergamot, red berries, autumn leaves, underbrush and amaro. Medium-bodied and silky, it slowly unfurls to floral and orange-tinged fruits, with a finely grained frame and juicy acidity calling you back for one more sip, finishing long and very layered. Lovely! Drink: 2020-2032. (Feb 2020)"
Producer notes: "38% Mourvèdre, 33% Grenache, 29% Syrah. Always wise in its pursuit of balance, the 2017 Sagacious is our distinctive take on a century old blend with its savory bouquet, high-toned presence and alluring texture. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre all take turns showcasing their unique signature of herbs, florals and bright berries intertwined with black fruit; all of which showcase this unforgettable vintage in its entirety. All three varietals make a statement on your palate, making it worthy of a standing ovation."
