d'Arenberg The Derelict Vineyard Grenache 2009
This wines has a lovely lipstick aroma on opening but soon flavours of fresh herbs and red licorice rise from the glass. I just let this sit in the glass while everything unfolded for 24 hours before I decided to stick it in my mouth as it was that good. Once the brooding and savoury flavours hit my tongue there was a note of sour cranberries and red-fruits joining the party before the tannins took hold. They are definitely evident but they are light and jovial on my tongue providing interest and a food friendly appeal.
