Nose has summer roses, cut cherries, mashed raspberry, stainless steel, minor flint, blood orange peel and dried rose; additional development with each swirl & sniff.
Palate has dried raspberry, dried orange peel, warm green herbs, dehydrated peach, mild tannins (wow), lengthy finish with minor dehydrated tart cherry. Such an experience with a barrel aged rosé!

24 Hour Update: Fresh raspberry most prominent today on the nose. Palate is showing raspberry jam with minor leather notes.
48 Hour Update: Fresh & dried raspberry, fresh rose, bowl of fresh cherries, moist cedar plank and dry sandstone on the nose. Palate is showing dried strawberry, dried raspberry, minor green herbs, dried orange peel and minor dried cherry. This bottle looks to finally unknitting towards its greater self.

So delicious.. more serious than some of the cinsauts that I have had. Nuanced and delicious. Still serious, but fun. — 4 months ago
Crazy blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Cinsaut, 20% Tannat; 10% Petite Syrah, 5% Syrah and 5% Zinfandel from the James Berry, Adams Ranch and G2 Vineyards.
Consumed over 2 days; Day 1 was dominated by the Grenache with a lifted sweetness of ripe strawberry and raspberry jams, red currants and really cool streak of citrus mid-palate; Day 2 showed more of a darker and savory palate with a heavy dose of Syrah and Tannat; spice and iron with black pepper on the back end; all these grapes played so well together presenting a lush and silky mouthfeel; 15% ABV wasn't even noticeable. — 10 months ago
Great tasting wine with an unusual taste. I think its the blend with the Cinsaut — a year ago
