    December 4, 2015 - I liked this a lot better out of the bottle than the glass I had from the tasting room a while back. Definitely a ripe note on the nose, but the taste is remarkably balanced. The acidity isn't dominant, but it is enough to give the fruit some space to shine. Enjoyable.

    February 1, 2015 - Wines At My Table; Week of February 1, 2015; 1/23/2015-2/1/2015: Dark ruby color with exuberant violet, roast meat, dark fruit, tar and a hint of menthol aromas. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, and well balanced with plum, cherry, black raspberry, and baking spice flavors. Long finish. 14.5% alcohol. Blend of 37% Grenache, 36% Syrah, and 27% Mourvedre

    May 23, 2013 - 37/36/27 Grenache/Syrah/Mourvedre. Real nice pepper, fruit, acidity combo. Black/red fruit really jumps out but still subtly, not overtly so. Nice balance.
