This is a blend of 43% Grenache, 29% Mourvedre, 18% Syrah, and 10% Counoise from Paso Robles. Purple in color, ruby at the rim, opaque and bright. The nose has black raspberries, black cherries, minerals, char, slight spice and a bit or candied raspberries. Full bodied. Great balance. Lots of energy. On the palate, this is delicious. No sign of the 15.8%abv. Loads of black cherries, black raspberries with a slight char and plenty of minerality. Long finish. This is young but drinking well now. It will get better though. Drink over the next twenty years. Great on its own, it needs big food if drinking soon. Cassoulet would work.
