    Winemaker's Notes:

    Crimson Ruby. Ripe cherry, strawberry and a violet character dominate the nose. Recessed and spice driven – the Kangarilla vineyard is elegant and light on its feet. Focused and precise, the primary influence is evident in the structure and the bright acidity ensures this will be a keeper.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Inky violet. Spicy, deeply concentrated black raspberry and boysenberry on the nose, with seductive Asian spices, lavender and incense qualities emerging with air. Sappy red and dark berry preserve flavors are enlivened by juicy minerality and pick up exotic spice and floral notes on the back end. The silky tannins provide shape but quickly fade into the fruit, which finishes with energetic mineral lift and cut. Finely etched, balanced and pure wine-and already delicious.

    International Wine Cellar

    Supple, expressive and generous with its red berry, exotic spice and hints of sweet leather as this sails on beautifully. The firm finish needs time to soften.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2006 Grenache Kangarilla Vineyard is the most fragrant of the Grenache offerings as well as the most pleasure-bent. It should be drunk up during its first decade of like.
