- Clarendon Hills Grenache Romas 2007 Product #29332 (In Stock)
Limited. Wines arrive February 20. From nearly 90 year-old vines, this is intense, deep, and generously ripe Australian Grenache at its best. And, “at its best” Aussie Grenache is for drinking in the full flower of youth rather than cellaring for years and years.
“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.”International Wine Cellar 93+ points
“The 2007 Romas Vineyard Grenache has a medium garnet-purple color and moderately intense dried cherry and mulberry aromas with some spicy fruits of the forest compote and dark chocolate notes. Crisp, concentrated and very spicy on the palate, it offers a medium level of chewy tannins and a long opulent finish.Wine Advocate 91 points
“Ripe and expressive, with bold plum, blackberry and spicy, meaty flavors that mingle harmoniously on a medium-weight frame, persisting impressively on the generous finish.Wine Spectator 94 points
