Oliver's Taranga Cadenzia Grenache 2010

Here's my tribute to Grenache Day, albeit a few days late.

Plenty going on to indulge the senses. Spice is prominent with some earthiness, cedar oak, compost and mulberries.

After three days the wine didn't budge and held true.Credit to great winemaking here. The fruit isn't big and ballsy as some Grenaches are, but it still packs a punch. Medium bodied the flavours are well balanced. A meaty trait is evident too. Right on exit there is a lick of sweetness before the dryness swoops in. Very enjoyable indeed.

The label recommends to have with pasta dishes, and you won't get any disagreements from me. I could easily back up and go back to this wine regularly.
