V90 Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Brilliant violet color. Fresh red and dark berries, peppery spices and fresh flowers on the nose. Shows good energy and lift to its spicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors, which put on weight and turn sweeter with air. Plenty ripe but not at all heavy, this blend finishes with solid punch, smooth tannins and lingering black and blue fruits." Juveniles is a 'cult' Parisian wine bar run by eningmatic ex-pat Englishman, Tim Johnston. He's been in Paris more than twenty years and is a passionate promoter of the Rhone Valley and it's wines, particularly individualist, quality minded producers. Torbreck founder David Powell hit it off with Tim over the years, eventually making a wine exclusively for his wine bar in 1999. In keeping with Tim and David's love of Rhone Valley varietals and the fact that they are equally at home in the Barossa, the blend constitutes old-vine Grenache, Mataro (Mourvedre) and Shiraz and was elevaged entirely in stainless steel.
