The Boy is 88% Grenache and 12% Syrah; the Grenache comes from Christophe Baron's biodynamic Armada vineyard. It's got a composty undertone to the fruit, with plenty of spice and earthy elements. There is a citrus component also. It's very smoky, very earthy and gamy. The tannins are smooth, but very earthy and leafy, with some bitterness. An intriguing wine. Paul Gregutt

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
