No Les Amis was bottled in 2016, so the successor to the 2015 is the 2017 Les Amis Grenache, a wine that spent two years in 50% new barriques. It's smoky (like a barbecue pit), boasting lots of dried spices (akin to a dry rub) and cola. (What else would you pair with barbecue?) It's full-bodied and creamy, with some cherry-berry notes (so maybe it's Dr. Pepper, not cola), but the wood is a bit too dominant to make me truly swoon, adding dry tannins on the finish.
