The distinct plum and berry flavors lead to pepper and spices and are seamlessly integrated with velvety tannins. A beautiful full bodied wine that is opulent, intensely flavored and striking.
The Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Grenache Blewitt Springs is a bit more reticent aromatically but several years of additional cellaring should alleviate that problem.
International Wine CellarSaturated ruby. Perfumed aromas of candied red and dark berries, sandalwood, fresh rose and white pepper. Silky in texture, with spicy raspberry and blueberry flavors, slow-mounting sweetness and dusty tannins. Showing a lot of spice today, which adds vibrancy to the deeply concentrated berry flavors. Finishes smooth, sweet and precise. I'd give this a few years in the bottle to gain complexity.
Wine SpectatorA ripe, sturdy style, with dense plum and pepper flavors, finishing with generosity and persistence. Best from 2009 through 2014. 500 cases imported.
