    I was so pleasantly surprised by all the Pirramimma wines and the pricing is just CRAZY good! This pure Grenache is from a vineyard called the "Prisoner of War" which was planted in 1944! These vines have produced a fine, rich, wild bramble flavored wine. Lots of gamey meaty notes reminiscent of the Southern Rhone. Toasted spice and dark-edged fruit fill the mid-palate. Beautifully polished tannins that have benefited from time in bottle. The wine finishes with a sandalwood note that lingers long on the palate. Exceptional value on this K&L exclusive deal.

    All of the Pirramimma wines are crazy good for the money, and have some bottle development as well. I have always been a fan of the '04 vintage which was a bit cooler and offered fine balance and structure. This Grenache has a lifted nose with smoky raspberry, dark cherry, cedar, clove, nutmeg and some meaty notes. On the palate there are supple tannins with good length.

    I really liked this wine’s smoky aromatics: savory, meaty, beef stew; almost just a rush of saturated flavors. On the palate the wine has a fleshy, supple and plush feel yet is balanced by a forceful acidity that brings the wine together on the palate. Soupy Aussie wines don’t do it for me but this wine crossed over into a really fun, rustic BBQ wine that will be sure to please lots of different palates.
