Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Grenache from Spain opens with a blueberry scone like bouquet with a hint of Chambord. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, rich and fruity. The flavor profile is a very tasty black raspberry with hints of boysenberry and faint oak. There is a touch of Chambord and black pepper towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. If you like big and juicy fruit bombs, then this wine is for you. Serve it with Great Hill blue cheese and fig spread on French baguette slices. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Very intense cherry red colour with tones of purple. Presents in the nose a great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. In the mouth it is a well structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with a soft and silky tannin.
