Yalumba Barossa Bush Vine Grenache, 2008

Punditry: Sambal spicey, Bobby Flay kick.  Not just pepper but spice cabinet dimensions.  Raspberry, plummy, jammy, luscious from the get go.  With food some of the fruit seemed like rhubarb, less lively, but still wonderful.  Absolutely lovely start to finish.  There is nothing not to like except, perhaps, what I thought was a rather shallow finish given the “nez du vin” as the “con-no-sirs” write.  Nice big beautiful red, perfect for a special occasion with a hearty meal.  Oh, and plaudits for another quality bottle with a screw top.

 

Price: $24.99 at BC Liquor or Everything Wine but with the case discount at EW $23.74.

 

Market Liquidity: I hate spending over $20 but I loved buying this wine.
