This blend clearly tastes that it contains Grenache and receives nice berry fruit from Zinfandel. A good wine to start an evening.

2011 Turtle Rock Maturin James Berry Vineyard Paso Robles Red Rhone Blend

Wines with Friends (and Game 4) (Chris and Renee's): From Paso Robles, I had not had this wine before. Of course, James Berry is certainly a Grand Cru vineyard and this wine delivered. It came out of the bottle swinging but did fade slightly over the night. Like many 2011's I don't think this will be as long lived. I will need to look for later vintages! Purple in color. The nose has a nice roasted meat note with black cherries and black pepper. It reminds me a lot of Beaucastel with a bit more bright fruit (not much). On the palate, juicy acidity. Some depth. The black cherry fruit carries thru but adds some boysenberries. Nice finish. Always fun to discover new wines.
