    Winemaker's Notes:

    Inky purple. A heady bouquet evokes ripe red berries, anise, mocha and pungent fresh flowers. Supple and sweet on entry, then more structured in the middle, offering deep, mineral-accented dried strawberry and cherry liqueur flavors. Takes a spicy turn on the long, sappy finish, which echoes the pure red berry qualities.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This outstanding winery, whose top end wines are made under the auspices of the well-known Australian winemaker, Chris Ringland, also produces this reasonably priced 2009 Veraton from 100% Grenache. Aged 17 months in a combination of French and American oak, and bottled unfiltered, it reveals good minerality from the vineyard’s slate and clay soils. Soft, round and full-bodied with an expansive, fleshy mouthfeel as well as plenty of red and black fruits, this terroir-driven red exhibits some oak, but it is well-integrated and reasonably subtle.
