Jauma Danby Grenache Syrah 2011

Image stolen from
Rose, strawberry and raspberry.  This blend of Grenache (90%) and Syrah (10%) is highly aromatic; gentle and soft in the red fruit spectrum.  I had the pleasure of attending a tasting with the entertaining James Erksine of Jauma (Jauma is James in Spanish) who commented on this particular wine: "lightness and purity, hedonistic and aromatic".

Highly drinkable on first opening.  The palate was light and juicy with hints of cherry.  Acid showed a little high for me.  There was little by way of fruit, length or depth and it didn't look the goods on a second night open. 87/88 - Average/ Good
