This is an awesome blend of Zinfandel, Syrah and Mourvedre.
I must say upfront that I think that I opened it much too early. This is a huge wine with a lot of alcohol, but I think it sit another year or two. It is very fruity, but has a great mouth-feel, the taste curve is well-balanced and it matched up with my Trader Joe’s Goat Cheese pizza quite nicely.
Color is dark purple and the wine has nice legs.
Aromas include blackberry, leather, a touch of blueberry, some cedar, and a touch of vanilla. I would like to say it smells like a late harvest Zinfandel, but that doesn’t quite explain the rich and ripe aroma.
In the mouth, it has a great balance. Flavors include blackberry, blueberry, and a horse saddle. (Ok, there’s a bit of leather in there.)
The finish is hot with tons of dark fruit and perhaps a touch of eucalyptus on the very end.
I like it a lot!
