Rock of Wisdom Grenache 2016

Top notes of fruit sit squarely, invitingly. It's a red berry conserve with aromatic spice accents. 

Wickedly medium bodied, there's an immediate onslaught of spice: pepper, suggestion of dutch licorice. Inherently savoury, a stark contrast to that aromatic opening. Tannin is fine, a flash of acid to freshen up, a mid-back palate bitterness

Back of a good length. Bitterness being a distraction is my only quibble. 90
