Most tannic of its Hickinbotham and Clarendon vineyard counterparts. Interestingly the spice of ginger and white pepper seen in the Clarendon is also apparent on the widely structured and tannic palate. Expressions of violet, dried basil and blueberries intertwine within the finely grained extract
Deep ruby. Explosive raspberry, blackberry and blueberry scents, along with suave Asian spices and fresh rose. Mouth-filling red berry flavors offer impressive clarity and silky texture for such volume. Velvety tannins add shape to this dense, strikingly sweet fruit bomb. I'd be tempted to drink it now, just to wallow in the seductive fruit.
Smooth and ripe, with pomegranate and red cherry fruit at the core and a strong overlay of peppery spice. The slightly gritty tannins need cellaring, but this should get there. Best from 2009 through 2015. 500 cases imported.
The 2005 Grenache Blewitt Springs is leaner and more structured than the Hickinbotham.
