Dry spiced and savory fruited palate is supported by complex tannin structure. Acidity and tannin are expressed in this layered and multidimensional example.

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"The 2005 Grenache Romas Vineyard delivers more complexity than the Onkaparinga, both aromatically and on the palate. An enticing perfume of damp earth, truffle, clove, black cherry, and blackberry is followed by a fullbodied, powerful, structured wine which will need a decade to reveal its full potential. Although it oozes with fruit and can be enjoyed now, it merits extended cellaring. "

Wine Spectator
"Firm in texture, this is tremendously generous with its red cherry and lingonberry flavors. A bit tart, but so fleshy that it wins the day, picking up some welcome minerality as the finish goes on and on. Best from 2010 through 2017. 500 cases imported."

Wine Enthusiast
" The most fullbodied and richly textured of the 2005 Grenaches from Clarendon Hills is the Romas. Its blackberry, chocolate and driedspice flavors come at you in plush waves, showing great persistence on the finish. Despite the Cellar Selection designation, it's probably best to drink this wine by about 2015."
