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.

The most backward, structured, tannic, and ageworthy of these offerings is always the Grenache Romas. The estate's flagship Grenache, it is fashioned from 86-year-old vines planted on ironstone soils at the highest elevation of the Blewitt Springs Vineyard. The 2004 Grenache Romas exhibits gorgeous notes of loamy soil, truffles, kirsch, spice box, blackberries, and licorice. This full-bodied, powerful, tannic 2004 will benefit from another 1-3 years of bottle age, and should age easily for 10-15+ years. -- Rated 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
