Too much alcohol on the nose and palate. A bit too forward too. I had hoped it would have smoothed out a little over time in the bottle but it did not. It might be better if allowed to breath for a day or so but it was taken to friend's house and consumed with dinner.

(For A Song The Melody Red Wine Columbia Valley) An aromatic wine with roasted coffee bean, game, mineral, and dark spices. The palate is full of coffee and dark fruit flavors with soft, silky tannins and an open finish. Not shy on the oak, but this wine delivers a whole lot of enjoyment and punches far above its weight. 34% Grenache, 32% Mourvèdre, 16% Cinsault, 13% Counoise, 5% Petite Sirah. 14.2% alcohol.
