Tasted On 11/01/2012
Dense, purple-red with bright mauve flecks. The nose on this Rhone-style blend is full of Syrah characteristics; black fruit, fennel, and a inky meatiness lurking in its depths. The palate actually displays some of the red fruit notes of the Grenache component along with very well balanced acidity. Excellent minerality for a wine at this price point.
definitely a bit young at this stage....the fruit needs to open up a bit more. But nothing at all to dislike. A very tasty blend, dark & rich, proving that you can get very good rhone style wines in the US, letting the fruit do most of the work.
