Review: 2006 Kaesler Grenache “The Fave” Barossa Valley
One sip and this Aussie Grenache will just about knock you down. At 16 percent alcohol, it’s a bruiser amongst bruisers and a wine that isn’t likely to win any awards in a nuance contest.
That said, it’s really full of flavor: Jammy, as you’d expect, but surprisingly lush with rich plum and cherry fruit, flecked with light spice notes — cinnamon and dusty charcoal character. If you can get through the brazen booziness of it, this is a fun wine (and not just because of the effect it has)… and a surprisingly food-friendly one.
B+ / $30
