    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep Ruby. Lifted fruits display red cherry, kirsch, red-currant with ginger and white pepper edges to a somewhat more spiced and elegant floral vineyard expression in 2006. Spiced red fruit notes integrate with the lightly textured tannins. The balance of unique vintage spice and the clarity of varietal characters make for a pleasing, lightly structured Clarendon vineyard Grenache.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Deep red. Spicy redcurrant and wild strawberry on the nose, with subtle pepper and floral notes adding complexity. Lush red and dark berry preserve flavors are unencumbered by tannins, putting on weight with air. Liqueur-like in its sweetness, yet the raspberry and blackberry flavors are strikingly pure and focused. Very sexy wine.

    International Wine Cellar

    The 2006 Grenache Clarendon is velvety, ripe, and sweetly fruited. It can be enjoyed in its youth but will provide pleasure for at least a decade.

    The Wine Advocate

    Lithe, supple and distinctive for its plum and spice flavors on a medium-weight frame, with a peppery licorice note adding interest to the finish.
