This is an outstanding old vine Grenache from Barossa Valley in Australia. It's hard to ask for anything more than Ross Estates 2001 Old Vine Grenache. Fruit and more fruit yet not a fruit bomb. The wine has a medium ruby garnet color. The nose is loaded with pure fruit expression of Grenache - pronounced aromas of strawberries and spicy pepper. In the mouth is where it shines. Texturally, the wine is a total pleasure. A fleshy, velvety consistency gives it a sensuous mouth feel full of flavor that is consistent with the aromas. With soft tannins and mellow acidity this wine is ready to drink now.
