Yelland & Papps, Devote Grenache 2010

Sometimes when you're reaching into the spot where you keep your liquid treasures, you want something comforting.  Such was my requirement when looking for something to crack open on a damp Brisbane Winter's evening.

It was comforting alright.   A comfort that comes in a spicy and savoury form.  A comfort of fruit, cola-hints and able supporting oak.  A comfort derived of coffee note and licorice; intriguing...alluring.

One for the grown-ups with its dark fruited depth, spice and pepper.   Layered, guided by good acid and structured, it's a joyous mix on the palate of fruit, florals, oh so more-ish licorice edged joy bound up with an easy to settle into style.
