Producer: Clarendon Hills
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Grenache
Region: McLaren Vale
93(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2010
($50; 84-year-old vines) Saturated ruby. The most aromatically complex of this year's set of grenache bottlings, displaying red and dark berries, cherry, rooty sassafras, smoky herbs and a sexy floral quality. Rich, palate-staining raspberry and boysenberry flavors are given shape by fine-grained tannins, which gain power with air. Packed with dense fruit but slow to show itself right now, finishing with a late note of exotic floral pastilles and very good youthful grip. This could use a couple years to unwind.
