Clarendon Hills Kangarilla Vineyard Old Vines Grenache 2003
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Clarendon|
Tight, smoothly polished and bursting with raspberry, blackberry, plum and sweet spice flavors that emerge with disarming simplicity but just expand on the palate, finishing seamless and beautifully balanced to last and last. Drink now through 2012.
Smells peppery and spicy, with meat, brown sugar and red pencil eraser to boot. Very pretty, chewy red fruit on the midpalate, though it's still not at its peak. Finishes long, with chalky-woody tannins. Try after 2008
