Winemaker Notes

Deep Ruby crimson. Dried herbs, brightly perfumed florals and spiced berry fruits intermingle in this lineated and refined nose. Plenty of background yet to come out. The evolving aroma offers whisps of dried stone fruit, sarsaparilla, kirsch liqueur, Cherry-Ripe bars, rose petal and mulberry. Dry spiced and savory fruited palate is supported by complex tannin structure. Acidity and tannin are expressed in this layered and multi-dimensional example.

Critical Acclaim

RP 99
The Wine Advocate

Medium garnet-purple in color and displaying a beautiful nose of violets, orange peel and black cherries alongside notes of spice cake, white pepper and lavender, the full-bodied 2006 Romas Vineyard Grenache is big, rich and gorgeous with a crisp acid backbone draped with layer upon layer of concentrated fruit flavor. The medium-firm, very fine tannins carry it through to a long finish. Drink it now to 2025+.

JH 96
Australian Wine Companion

A remarkable wine; the flavour echoes and ricochets around the mouth, building on the back-palate and finish; a wine of extraordinary thrust, but also polish. From 80-year-old vines, made without acid addition, fining or filtration.

ST 94
International Wine Cellar

Vivid ruby. Exotic Asian spices and smoky minerals accent fresh raspberry and boysenberry on the nose; shows more perfumed anise, patchouli and vanilla notes with aeration. Sweet black raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors are sharpened by tangy minerals but betray no rough edges. This really stains the palate, leaving deep dark berry liqueur and candied floral notes behind, eventually. This is irresistible now.

WS 94
Wine Spectator

Ripe and expressive, with bold plum, blackberry and spicy, meaty flavors that mingle harmoniously on a medium-weight frame, persisting impressively on the generous finish.

Following his favorite producers and preferred styles, Roman sought to make a version of the wines he loved.
