Wine Critic Jeb Dunnuck says, "Tasted out of bottle and all varietal, the 2021 Grenache Kän-kret has a great nose of kirsch liqueur, dried herbs, pepper, and sandalwood that carries to a medium to full-bodied, round, layered style on the palate. It's a Châteauneuf du Pape look-alike that can be drunk with ample pleasure today yet has the structure to benefit from a year or three of bottle age and evolve for a decade." 94 pts
Wine Critic, Brianne Cohn, of Decanter says, “Kän-krēt’ is a phonetic pronunciation for the word ‘concrete’. The intention with ageing in concrete here is to highlight the purity of the Grenache fruit, which this wine achieves on both the nose and the palate with bright red fruit, and specifically notes of cherry. Minerality and spice prevail, as does a freshness throughout due to its marked acidity. This is a wine that could easily be enjoyed now, but it will also reward cellaring,” 93-Points / #10 of Top30 2021 wines from Paso Robles
Wine Critic Owen Bargreen says, "This 2021 edition was aged entirely in concrete tanks and utilizes Grenache clonal selection 362. Deep and concentrated on the palate, this shows Mandarin orange rind flavors that mingle well with ripe strawberry, red currants, and shades of stony soils. Very juicy and delicious, this is already beautifully evolved stuff that will live on for at least another ten years. Drink 2023-2033" 94 pts.
Wine Critic, Eric Guido, of Vinous says, "The 2021 Kän-Krēt Grenache is darkly inviting, opening with a flourish of savory herbs and spice that gives way to dried strawberries. This silky-smooth, nearly opulent in feel, balanced by a salty burst of minerality that gives way to ripe wild berries. The 2021 finishes gently tannic and with admirable length, leaving a chewy concentration of black raspberry to slowly fade. There's so much power and complexity here, but it will take years to reveal its hidden charms." 92-Points
