Winemaker's Notes

A wine of dense ruby/plum color with a raspberry and blackberry scented perfume. An unctuously textured mouthfeel, marvelous elegance, and an incredibly intoxicating personality.

Critical Acclaim

"Always the most structured and potentially complex here, the exotic 2003 Grenache Old Vines Romas Vineyard exhibits a dark purple color as well as a big, peppery, herbs de Provence, melted licorice, black raspberry and cherry-scented nose. Full-bodied and powerful, with layers of fruit, enormous concentration, and a masculine, structured personality, it needs another year of bottle age, and should last for a decade. "
