Yum yum yum. So easy drinking but not boring at all. Great on its own or paired with red meats and cheese. No hard tannin flavor. Not oaky. Not light enough for white meats. — 13 days ago

Monthly WTF wine group night. Our theme was American oak vs French oak. All wines tasted blind. We started off with two bottles of bubbly and finished with two non-themed reds.
For being a Mollydooker, I was surprised at how nimble this was. Sure, it was a hedonistic and rich style, but it didn’t seem too hot or flabby. Lots of cocoa powder, freshly dipped chocolate covered black cherries, savory cherry tobacco leaves and finished with a note of Andes mint. I called this Syrah with American oak.

Buried a dozen of this in the back of the cellar and still have 9 bottles left after this one. Great intensity yet still medium weight. Mocha Chocolate savoury plum and herb garden. A sweet medium to full bodied palate with fine grained Tannins. Just cruising at 17 years of age from a cooler vintage which resulted in a longer hang time for the grapes. Resolved Tannins. Penfolds say this will live until 2030. Lovely wine. — 5 days ago
Tons of flavour. Lots of oak and buttery flavour. Great on its own or with a bag of jalapeno and cheddar crisps! — 19 days ago
Absolutely massive wine!!
Dark purple color. Plums, prunes, alcohol, and baking spices on the nose. Concentrated and fruit forward. Dark fruit and spice on the palate. Insanely long finish.
2 glass minimum for how big this wine is! :) Might last till 2119!! — 12 hours ago
The 2010 ‘Romas’ is a dazzling effort at now nine years of age. Tannic and strangely backwards upon opening, this Grenache considerably benefits from a one hour decant. Once awoken, the wine shows a gorgeous array of aromatics from ripe rose petals to potpourri and exotic spices that meld with the deep red currants and red cherry compote that take shape in the glass. The soft, silky texture entices, as does the bright sense of minerality. Unveiling its plush mouthfeel, the ‘Romas’ plays with suggestions of kirsch cordial and boysenberry jam with minerals, orange zest and lovely earthy undertones. Complex and delightful at this stage, the 2010 ‘Romas’ will have at least another decade left in the cellar. Drink 2019-2033- 93 — 3 days ago
Very fruity and tasty wine. — 14 days ago
Mid Gold in colour - crystal clear. Kerosene/mineral notes with some chalky aromas. Pristine citrusy flavours coming into the stone fruit spectrum. Medium minus acid but medium plus intensity. (12.5% ABV). A well made Eden Valley Riesling drinking at its peak. — 3 days ago
