Serious, deeply colored wine that needs another year or so to resolve itself. But even now a powerfully flavored wine that has a nose of spice, oak, roses, and a sweet orange-peel like note like Grand Marnier. Firmly structured wine whose fruit is hard to define -- cranberries? Licorice in the finish. Another excellent Lytton Estate Grenache from Ridge. - WB Team 2001-07-11
