    Winemaker's Notes:

    This single vineyard Grenache from a block in the Light Pass sub-region of the Barossa was planted in the late 19th Century. The wine has been aged for 24 months in one year old French Oak to allow softening and maturation without imparting too much oak flavor. This Grenache has ample fruit weight with big chewy tannins and a palate loaded with spice and herbs. A wonderful finish comes with excellent grip and mouth pucker from the tannins. Great balance and elegance.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Old Vine Grenache was sourced from wines ranging in age from 80-130 years. Dark ruby-colored, it gives up a spicy perfume of cherry, garrigue, and underbrush. Smooth-textured and full-bodied, It has plenty of savory fruit, good depth, and a lengthy finish. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.

    Needs to breathe for several hours. Out of the bottle it exhibits a straight alcohol nose.

    Way too much alcohol for my taste. Color seemed a bit off, and the fruit never developed to compete with the alcohol. Perhaps a bad bottle? I'm hoping the next bottle is better.
