Consistent with last bottle. Dark red core, no lightening at rim. Bright cherry and spicy oak on the nose. Medium body, sweet cherry, blackberry and oak on the palate, decent balance, moderate tannins , medium finish. Very good
Dark red core, no lightening at rim. Bright cherry and spicy oak on the nose. Medium body, sweet cherry, blackberry and oak on the palate, decent balance, moderate tannins and a bit of alcohol poke through on the back palate, medium finish. Not complex or mind-blowing but a nice QPR at $12, and the sweet fruit would probably be a crowd pleaser for most groups, reminiscent of an inexpensive by-the-glass selection. Will likely hold up nicely for 3-5 years. Very good.
Similar to our last bottle.Cherry from the granache mixes with blackberry from the syrah. There's a fair amount of oak that provides some midpalate spiciness but also a little roughness, and the tannins haven't smoothed out yet. Good for the price but could use some time.
A little harsh upon opening but improved with time. A grenache-driven rhone blend with some nice dark fruit in the background from the syrah. The tannins are a little rough on the back end but overall a good qpr.
