Yelland & Papps Devote Grenache 2011

This had me a little off guard. Don't ask me how I know this, but on opening this smelled a little of cosmetics, in particularly of a ladies powder tray. There, I said it. 

Backs it up with cherry, a little doughy, meaty - light charcuterie. Violets, dusky, cranberry, redcurrants and a splash of raspberry. Medium bodied, peppery with a chalky tannin feel. Fluid - open and light, and towards its finish shows a distinct Szechuan spice note. Shows a little of everything and it works well together,

Over the two days I had it open, I pointed anywhere from 88-91, opting for the mid here: 89/90 - Good
