Plenty of bass notes to this rich, savory example, showing loam, mineral and fresh mushroom accents that mingle with a dense blackberry and cassis core. Spice and tobacco details linger on the finish, with the tannins firming up. Drink now through 2028. 120 cases made, 40 cases imported.
Bright cherry and raspberry fruit marks the nose of Torbreck's 2016 Hillside Vineyard Grenache. The oak signature is modest, with fruit and dried spices (cinnamon, allspice and clove) taking the lead in this full-bodied but delicate, nimble wine. The tannins have a silky feel, lingering on the finish, where they add savory nuance.
A very bold, fleshy and plum-driven grenache from 1949 plantings near Lyndoch in the south of the Barossa Valley. There’s attractive depth and freshness that match up with the sturdy tannins. Drink or hold.
The first reaction is to say don't be fooled by the alcohol figure, the second is more or less the contrary. It's varietal, but grenache can be seductive, why force it into the big bully style of yesteryear.
