- Crimsom color and aromas of blackberry, black currant, raisin, cherry and chocolate. It's somewhat balanced and has flavours of cherry and vanilla - Serious, well made wine but it never quite opens up.
Syrah and Grenache at Blackstone Steakhouse (Blackstone Steakhouse Norwalk CT.): The Jonata was interesting but had a tough act to follow after a Sine Qua Non. This dialed back the power and aimed for finesse. Got a nice perfume of blueberry, blackberry and raspberry with really more of the same on the palate. Had a nice 45 second finish. Not a hard edge on this one and drinking really nice right now.
This wine surprised, but not on the positive side. Unrecognizable when compared wit my notes from 5 yrs ago. The "hot mess" quote is completely applicable. Tread cautiously with this one (won't make a good impression on your mother-in-law).
