Delicious Grenache

This was an unexpected flavor buster for me.  I figured it would be fruit forward, but this wine explodes in your mouth with jobs of blueberries and dark rich black berries.  Enjoy with a big juicy steak.

While this is a fun wine to give as a gift (Funny or Mean), the wine itself is pretty solid for the price.  It's a very basic grenache with pretty high alcohol and lots of fake dark fruit - think blueberry and plums but more like candies in the shapes of plums and blueberrys.

This wine is a fine example of Australian styled Grenache with a little extra earth and meat.  However, its not anything special and would only be worth recommending if it was a value.

This grenache delivered the high alcohol that you would expect from Australia, but it also offered up some wonderful blueberry flavors with nice dark wood polishing off the finish.

Gimmick - But not bad

This is obviously a marketing ploy, and not a bad idea for a name and label (pink).  This is sure to sell as a gag wine, or as a bachlorette gift, or just a nice way to break up with someone.  However the wine falls way short of being considered a quality Grenache.  It's not bad, just gimicky in its taste.  Fake fruit, high alcohol, and over-the-top acidity.  Better than any other gag gift you'll ever give though!

Good Grenache

This wine has a deep purple core, fresh colors, and highlights of fuchsia on rim. The nose is also fresh, fruity, and slightly sweet with a combination of red and black fruits like raspberry and currant. It is lighter than one would expect on the palate but its freshness is undeniable. Decent tannin, more black fruits, and long finish suggest that it could be drunk with food or simply by itself.
