Yalumba 2011 "The Tri-Centenary" Grenache, Australia

Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good+ (92)
Price: $54
KWG Score: 93.2
No. Professional Ratings: 4
# of Cases: 352
This ruby colored Grenache from Barossa is very interesting and intriguing. It opens with a plum and cranberry bouquet with hints of cinnamon. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, juicy and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty tart cherry with notes of old oak and cinnamon. I also detected hints of pomegranate, black pepper and mild minerality throughout. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Grenache is drinking very well right now and would pair perfectly with a filet mignon from your favorite steakhouse. Enjoy - Ken
