Deep ruby. Explosive raspberry, blackberry and blueberry scents, along with suave Asian spices and fresh rose. Mouth-filling red berry flavors offer impressive clarity and silky texture for such volume. Velvety tannins add shape to this dense, strikingly sweet fruit bomb. I'd be tempted to drink it now, just to wallow in the seductive fruit.
This has the dried grape skin character of an Amarone, but with a completely different flavor. Peppermint oil, sour cherry and strawberry scents emerge out of an initially black attack. The underlying earthiness will match short ribs.
The 2005 Grenache Blewitt Springs is leaner and more structured than the Hickinbotham.
Smooth and ripe, with pomegranate and red cherry fruit at the core and a strong overlay of peppery spice. The slightly gritty tannins need cellaring, but this should get there. Best from 2009 through 2015
