Wine Review: This dark red colored Grenache based blend from Australia is very good. It opens with a mild red plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused black currant with notes of oak. I also detected hints of olive and black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins and flavors are very nicely prolonged. I would pair this wine with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Cherry with a bright youthful edge. Nose: Dark fruits, hints of spice and pepper. Palate: Supple, elegant mouth feel. Blackberry with lighter red fruits such as red currant. Some spicy notes of fruit and oak mingle on the palate. Enjoy over the next 5-8 years.
