Clarendon Hills Romas Vineyard Old Vines Grenache 2003
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Clarendon|
Wild and more than a little gamy, an irreverent wine that flaunts its animal, almost feral qualities, finally tying them up with smooth, bright cherry and berry fruit that emerges on the generous finish. Best from 2006 through 2012. 1,000 cases made.
Aromas are fruit-sweet one minute, and dark and earthy the next. Offers thick, pulpy tannins on the tongue, with fruit that glows red, then purple. Medium-long on the finish; this is an excellent, very compelling Grenache. Will show its best in 2-3 years.
