Loveable grenache

Zonte’s Footstep Love Symbol Grenache 2015, McLaren Vale, AUD $25

This is a big, solid grenache that will age well. The aromas are attractively raspberry-like with foresty, sousbois overtones. The palate is round, smooth and quite assertive with masses of tannin, but at the same time, up-front appeal and drinkability. It has the legs to age. (Screwcap)
