"On opening the anticipation starts to rev up at the sound of the cork being pulled but then on pouring the 2010 Grenache a delightful spectrum of colour washes over the glass, a striking crimson red lights up the purples. At first, focus on the lighter pretty notes of poached quince liquor and stewed Rhubarb. This leads to the spice range of Szechuan pepper, roasted cumin that combine with herbal notes of Tabaco pouch. Tangerine peel stiches into Campari with a twist of orange. The aromas get deeper and more savoury as the journey proceeds; weathered riding boots, horse blanket and hard-earned sweat after a dressage session. Then appears sweet notes of exotic timber; hickory and sandalwood from Jake's guitar. The palate is fresh and lively. Stunning bright fresh flavours of a red pear from Macca's orchid? I might toffey a red pear on a stick and see how that fits. The flavours drape over the tongue in a full but restrained way. Reduced jus of quail and beetroot heightened by seasoning of caraway and fennel. The body of the wine fills with dark fruit and quince paste. No sweetness or hotness to heavy the palate. The palate flows beautifully with many cryptic and exotic twists and turns." —winemaker
"The 2010 Cadenzia Grenache displays a medium garnet color and fragrant aromas of kirsch, potpourri and roses over nuances of baking spices and raspberry compote. Full bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, it has a wonderful plush, silkiness to the texture with medium to hing, enlivening acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2016+." —Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate (June 2012)

"Bright ruby-red. Spice-accented aromas of red berries, cola and white pepper. Firmly built and fresh, with sappy raspberry and spicy oak flavors and bright, sharpening acidity. Closes sappy and long, with lingering spiciness and no rough edges." —Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (July/August 2013)
