Gallica

Shake Ridge Ranch Suzuri Series Red Rhone Blend 2013

Dark, rich, and ripe on the nose: deep dark berries, sandstone-like crushed rock and a bit of baker’s chocolate. Mouthfilling and ripe. A bit too chocolatey for me, to be honest, but still a very good winter weight wine. 53% Syrah, 34% Grenache, 11% Mourvèdre, and 2% Viognier. — 5 days ago

No sulfur. This is awesome. Crunchy sour cherry, herbs, and a menthol note in a super-fresh package. Made in minuscule quantities. — 24 days ago
