This is a blend of 76% Grenache, 13% Mourvèdre, and 11% Syrah from the central Coast (although carries a California AVA designation).  This is a very impressive full throttle, ripe California Grenache.  Purple in color, opaque and shimmering bright.  The nose is deep with black raspberries, black cherries, leather, floral notes, spice, leather and coffee.  Full bodied.  Plush texture.  Great energy.  On the palate, this is deep but accessible.  Lots going on.  Delicious.  Black raspberries, black cherries, black pepper, with a bit of gravel and slight earthiness.  Long finish.  Great on its own, but this will need big foods right now.  It would work well with heavy pasta dishes.  Drink over the next fifteen to twenty years.
