Clarendon Hills Grenache Clarendon Old Vines Romas 2005
Wine Spectator Review Rated 93 Supple, plush and velvety, this plays its currant and blueberry flavors against hints of aromatic tea as the finish lingers enticingly. Tempting now. Best from 2009 through 2015. Wine Advocate Review Rated 92 The 2005 Grenache Clarendon is dark ruby-colored with an enticing bouquet of violets, damp earth, and sappy black cherry. This leads to a ripe, velvety-textured, intensely fruity, structured wine which will evolve for 4-5 years and drink well through 2020.
