Winemaker Notes:  Deep Ruby crimson. Dried herbs, brightly perfumed florals and spiced berry fruits intermingle in this lineated and refined nose. Plenty of background yet to come out. The evolving aroma offers whisps of dried stone fruit, sarsaparilla, kirsch liqueur, Cherry-Ripe bars, rose petal and mulberry. Dry spiced and savory fruited palate is supported by complex tannin structure. Acidity and tannin are expressed in this layered and multi-dimensional example.

Medium garnet-purple in color and displaying a beautiful nose of violets, orange peel and black cherries alongside notes of spice cake, white pepper and lavender, the full-bodied 2006 Romas Vineyard Grenache is big, rich and gorgeous with a crisp acid backbone draped with layer upon layer of concentrated fruit flavor. The medium-firm, very fine tannins carry it through to a long finish. Drink it now to 2025+.  -- Rated 99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
