February 13, 2017 - Drank this at Chef Chan's Restaurant tonight with some wine mates. Theme of the night: Wines from the Year of the Rooster.
Dark purple in colour with notes of berries, gum, strawberries and cherries on the nose. On the palate the wine is wonderfully balanced and integrated; the fruit flavours are pronounced but not overpowering. Wine is rounded with a sweet, smooth, long finish.
Probably at the peak of its drinking window.

January 5, 2017 - This wine is so enjoyable. The nose is full of berries but the raspberries just jump at you very intensely! A bit of leather and grass as well and the finish is so good and and long.1 person found this helpful Comment

July 12, 2016 - Very good wine, but not as smooth as the other 2005 Clarendon Hills Grenache I've had...

July 2, 2016 - As Francophile1 previously noted, it has classic Grenache notes on the nose, with pleasant candied-fruit notes. Overall, this was quite good, leading me to wonder why I'm not drinking more Grenache and Grenache-based blends. It was good with virtually no air on day 1, with very little drop-off on days 2 and 3. 92+
