(a blend of 44% grenache, 31% mourvedre and 25% syrah; grown on old, rocky volcanic soil at an altitude of 1,700 feet): Good dark, bright red. Complex, expressive nose offers blueberry, blackberry, licorice, cardamom and black pepper. Precise and vibrant, with dark fruit flavors perked up by pepper and an ineffable spice component. Very silky wine with terrific aromatic complexity. The slowly mounting finish features firm but fine-grained tannins that dust the teeth. A superb showing today.Author: Stephen Tanzer
