The 2005 Grenache Romas Vineyard delivers more complexity than the Onkaparinga both aromatically and on the palate. An enticing perfume of damp earth truffle clove black cherry and blackberry is followed by a full-bodied powerful structured wine which will need a decade to reveal its full potential. Although it oozes with fruit and can be enjoyed now it merits extended cellaring. -Jay Miller

Firm in texture this is tremendously generous with its red cherry and lingonberry flavors. A bit tart but so fleshy that it wins the day picking up some welcome minerality as the finish goes on and on. Best from 2010...

Room-filling aromas of strawberry preserves raspberry kirsch Asian spices and floral oils. Densely packed red and dark berry flavors are framed by supple tannins but seem to overwhelm them with a sweet vanilla bean quality adding further complexity. Finishes with outstanding depth precision and length leaving palate-staining raspberry in its wake. What the hell do you serve this with and does it matter?-Josh Raynolds

A massive grenache, this is neither sweet nor overpowering in its concentrated red fruit flavor. Instead, it manages a sort of generous elegance, with subtle complexity under a velvet texture.

Instead, it manages a sort of generous elegance, with subtle complexity under a velvet texture. Earthy tannins follow that balance of controlled power. For the cellar.
