Tir Na N’Og (meaning Land of the Youth) is a brand owned by importer John Larchet to honor his Irish heritage. The 2005 Old Vines Grenache is purple colored with a spicy nose of black cherry, black raspberry and chocolate. Ripe, sweet, and full-bodied to the point of opulence, it has a velvety texture, layers of flavor and 3–4 years of aging potential. Drink this lengthy Grenache through 2020.

Smooth, open-textured and fragrant with blackberry and currant fruit, this is a wine with real presence. Finishes with a peppery spice note and a hint of chocolate on a silky frame. Drink now through 2011.

Ruby-red. Spicy red and dark berry aromas boast impressive energy and clarity. Nervy strawberry and raspberry flavors are plenty sweet but possess very good structure and juicy acidity. No fat here. Picks up pungent floral pastille qualities on the finish, which displays excellent breadth and cut. Delicious already, but clearly built to age.
