($47) Full medium red. Wild aromas of red berries, leather, smoke, truffle and pepper. Sweet, lush and gamey, but with sound acids framing the concentrated candied fruit flavors. A note of cranberry adds aromatic lift. Finishes sweet and long.

A sexy concoction of kirsch liqueur, melted licorice, and flowers emerges from the 2002 Grenache Old Vines Clarendon Vineyard. With a sumptuous texture, full body, a splendidly concentrated mid-palate, and an expansive, blockbuster finish offering a bit of tannin, but primarily abundant fruit and glycerin, this impeccably well-balanced whopper should drink well for 10-14 years. Roman Bratasiuk is one of Planet Earth's greatest winemakers, and obviously a top-notch viticulturist given his obsession with sourcing extraordinary fruit from ancient McLaren Vale vineyards.
