Jeb Dunnuck, 98 Points 

"Gorgeous rose petals, wildflowers, cured meats, wild strawberries, and framboise-like notes emerge from the 2018 Grenache God Only Knows, another ethereal, sensationally complex, nuanced, medium-bodied Grenache that's as unique and singular as they come. Blossoming with time in the glass, it has ripe, present tannins, a layered, building mouthfeel, and a gorgeous, smoky, meaty finish. It needs 3-5 years in the cellar (it's far from unapproachable today) to integrate its tannins and structure and will deliver the goods over the following 10-15 years." 

James Suckling, 97 Points 

"Dried roses, plums, cherries, lemon zest and dried basil on the nose. It’s full-bodied with creamy tannins. Juicy, bright and savory with delicious layers of fruit and herbs. Hints of chocolate, too. Silky, supple finish. Drink or hold." 

Wine Advocate, 96 Points 

"Erupting from the glass with spiced cherry and smoked plum tones, the 2018 Grenache God Only Knows Armada Vineyard offers up notions of dusty roses, red peppercorn and dried potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is balanced with energetic acidity, a spicy, red-fruited expression and fine-grained, succulent tannins. The wine concludes with a dusty essence and a lingering flavor of red pepper skin. The wine rested for 22 months in neutral French demi-muids and foudre. It's stunningly good, and I have no choice but to finish the glass." 

Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points 

"This wine is predominantly Grenache, harvested at just over one ton per acre. The aromas start out reserved for this appellation and estate, with notes of strawberry, peat, potpourri, smoked meat, clay and soot. Fuller-feeling potpourri and orange rind flavors follow, ramping up in intensity over time. The finish just will not quit, kicking it up a notch. Give it a bit of time in the cellar to reap the fullest rewards. Best after 2024. Cellar Selection."
