Tir Na N’og Old Vines Grenache 2008
I couldn’t find any evidence that Tir Na N’Og is still in existence, it would seem that the last vintage on the market is the 2008. At any rate, its developed nicely, with a juicy pop of red fruit—strawberries, raspberries and lovely secondary notes of Asian spice, sandalwood, and incense. Lightly-styled and rather sleek despite a 14.5% ABV, there is considerable acidity too, along the lines of tart cranberries or pie cherry. Finishes on an herbal note.
