Reilly's Grenache Old Bushvine 2007
Reilly's Clare Valley location tends to give its wines a little more focus than some of the wines coming out of nearby Barossa, like this fine example of old vine Grenache. Aromas of brandied cherries sprinkled with star anise add touches of chocolate and earth on the palate. It's full, round and generous, yet finishes firm and focused. Drink now and over the next few years.Add winemaker's notes

One of the most serious wines in Reilly's portfolio is the 2004 Grenache Old Bushvine. Its dark plum color is accompanied by a sweet, sexy bouquet of black cherry jam intermixed with licorice, roasted peanuts, and earth. Full-bodied, round, and smooth, it should be enjoyed over the next 4-5 years.
Bright ruby. Pungent, complex aromas of black raspberry, cherry, smoky Indian spices and minerals. Supple and alluringly sweet, with deep, focused red and dark berry flavors, fully absorbed tannins and gentle mineral cut. This is ready to drink right now with a peppery grilled hunk of red meat.
Dark red. Powerful and sweet on the nose, with strong raspberry and strawberry liqueur aromas and no earthy qualities. A real fruit bomb but there's also good focus to the ripe, sweet red fruit flavors, with gentle tannins giving shape to the wine. Finishes bright, juicy and persistent, with a tidal wave of strawberry and raspberry preserve flavors. Delicious stuff.
The 2005 Old Bushvine Grenache offers a fragrant perfume of cedar, kirsch, raspberry jam, and blackberry. Spicy on the palate and full-bodied, this tasty wine has no hard edges. Drink this super value over the next 5-7 years.
