  • medium bodied, smooth from start to finish. Dark ruby/garnet color with good legs. dark fruit on the nose, with a blended flavor of black currant, licorice, and cherry. The wine has silky texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has medium acidity. This was my last bottle, but I believe it will be good for a few more years.

  • When I first had this, five years ago upon its release by the now-defunct Grateful Palate, I was properly incensed, and would have given this an 80 or less; the wine seemed the incarnation of the kind of thing that undid Australia: another unbalanced rocket fuel with stratospheric ABV. I was amazed that the company represented the thing as a dinner wine, rather than a freakish post-prandial oddity of sorts.

    I promptly both forgot the rest of the bottles in the cellar and began the acceptance process -- no more illusions harbored about what this wine is. So with that said? At this late date I'd say that while this is definitively not my kind of thing, it isn't quite unbalanced, either -- even with its insane alcohol levels. The color is gorgeous -- light and cranberrytastic. Some menthol/medicinal qualities on the back end. Not at all port-like or reduced anymore. This is an after-dinner drink, and not something to serve with food.

  • As most other reviews note, Grenache is different...it was worth trying but not my favourite. Taste was almost medicinal or like a cough syrup. One other review noted the taste was like a drier port and i would agree with that assessment. The wine is a very light red and doesn't have much body.

  • Wines on A Saturday Afternoon (Charlie's): This is different and so not for everyone. 17.7%Alc. Cherries and raisins on the nose. Black cherries on the palate. No heat anywhere on the wine, but it is a bit raisined. Almost port like but dry. Interesting. A small taste was enjoyable but plenty.
