The Colonial Estate 2005 Alexander Laing Single Vineyard Old Vine Grenache (Barossa Valley)

Like a couple of other Colonial Estate 2005s, this has a lifted nose that flirts with volatile vinyl and acetone scents, then settles down to deliver spice and chocolate. This is really fudge-like and dense, picking up hints of pepper on the finish along with some dusty tannins. Should be long-lived for Australian Grenache; drink now–2015. Joe Czerwinski
