This is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Petite Sirah from various vineyards across California. Purple in color, ruby at the rim, opaque and bright. The e nose has black cherries, black raspberries and some smoke. Full bodied. Firm tannins. Nice texture. On the palate, this is ripe but short of cloying. It has a balance to it that makes it easy to drink and very tasty. Black raspberries with underlying char. Alcohol is noticeable on the finish. This probably drinks better on its own than with food but would work with a burger. Drink over the next five years.
