    Winemaker's Notes:

    A wine to watch evolving in your glass. Aromas of roasted meats, licorice, white pepper and sweet paprika emerge with maraschino cherries and blueberries. The palate is rich and soft, dominated by very pure, exotic, spiced red fruit and Turkish Delight notes. This is followed by savory edges of herbs, bitter chocolate and earthy leather flavors that are long, juicy and balanced with fine, lacy acidity and ripe, slippery tannins. This is real Grenache, at its best.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Medium red. Deep, smoky aromas of black raspberry, potpourri and white pepper. At once juicy and smooth, with intense red fruit flavors supported by a structural underpinning that is firm but not hard. Very grenache in its red fruits and spices. Finishes long and brisk, with silky tannins arriving late and adding grip. Drinking really well right now.

    International Wine Cellar

    Dark and ripe, with distinctive cherry, floral and exotic spice aromas and flavors that keep going on the long, plump finish. Drink now through 2013. 400 cases imported.

    The medium ruby-colored 2007 The Derelict Vineyard Grenache is redolent of garrigue, lavender, and black cherry aromas. Ripe, smooth, and easy-going, this spicy, cherry-flavored, lengthy Grenache will offer much pleasure over the next 4-5 years.
