Dark ruby. Mulled spice and blueberry nose. Medium to full bodied, plums, pepper, jammy blackberries, soft tannins, and a sticky-sweet finish. A little over-extracted for my taste.
Intense, complex, nice fruit as well. My last bottle...wish I had bought more. I've said this so many times...I've got to change my buying habits!
My wife says... smooth and elegant.. I enjoyed it very much..!
We enjoyed the first two bottles so much we ordered more. This is a hearty, balanced blend that benefits from some air.
sharp but enjoyable
given its blended amount it of course is very forward and juicy, the Gren. adds a spike to it in just the right amount, but i love both varietals so it hits the spot
Sad to see it's gone
Just had it and thought it very complex and tasty. Wanted to order more, but I'm too late.
either decant this for 2 hours or hold onto it for a couple of years. this wine is quite a monster for a syrah/grenache blend. maybe I'm just used to more french iterations of this blend, but this kind of lacked the elegance i was looking for. if you want something to cellar that is super complex, go for it but definitely know it needs its time.
Very nice wine, good body, great with Baby Back ribs
