D'Arenberg 2002 The Derelict Vineyard Grenache (McLaren Vale)

Though more expensive than d'Arenberg's The Custodian Grenache, I liked this one less. Brown sugar and maple syrup aromas dominate; the palate is mercifully not as sweet as the nose would suggest, showing mostly black plum and berry notes. Wooly tannins on the finish have staying power, but the feel on the palate is pretty straighforward. 500 cases produced.
