Boom Boom! Washington State Syrah 2017

Bought for cooking so we didn't waste the good WA Syrah! Has the blackberry aromas and flavors but not jammy, not lush, no acid, just flat and boring. #gotm2020 — 2 years ago


Tedeschi Vineyards Dry Creek Valley Syrah 2015

Blackberry jam aromas but more tart blackberries on the palate with the nice tingly acid that balances the lush mouthfeel and keeps the wine feeling very light. #gotm2020 — 2 years ago

Unlitro Alicante Blend 2019

A super light and fresh blend of grenache, carignan, and alicante bouschet. A natural wine so the slightly funky forest floor notes definitely come through in the aromas and taste. Some minerals and cherries on the nose and definitely tart cherries on the palate followed by a chalky lingering mouthfeel. Pushing the border of my limit for natty funk, but should pair wonderfully with pasta! #gotm2020 — 2 years ago

Cream Wine Company

Lenore Washington Estate Syrah 2018

Pours inky dark garnet/purple. Jammy black fruit aromas, blackberries and plums. Big lush body with lots of jammy fruit flavors and tongue tingling acid that follows. Balanced and complex, and delicious! #gotm2020 — 2 years ago

Mégaphone Ventoux Grenache Syrah 2016

Dark garnet with a big nose of black fruits and savory herbs. Tart blackberry acid hits first, then warming herby notes and a rounder body, with smooth lingering tannins, minerals and herbs. Delicious!! #gotm2020 — 2 years ago

Domaine de la Guicharde

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2018

Pours super dark ruby red to purple. Earth, forest floor, and potting soil aromas that continue to the palate where there are also black fruit notes. Smooth tannins make for a very structured wine. Get to Know Grenache Class #gotm2020 — 2 years ago

Château de Saint-Cosme

Côtes du Rhône Syrah 2019

Ripe black raspberry and mushroom aromas, lush body but bug tannins come in quickly! Some nice tingly acid too. Still very fruity but with a savory/earthy side and those tannins to balance it. #gotm2020 — 2 years ago

Samuel's Collection Barossa Shiraz 2017

Very aromatic with blackberry jam notes, round and lush on the palate with good tingly acid, medium tannins, and the blackberry and black fruit notes continuing. A fruit bomb, but a refined fruit bomb! #gotm2020 — 2 years ago

4 Monos Viticultores

GR 10 Garnacha Blend 2018

Dark ruby red with a very aromatic nose; some spices, some floral notes. Crazy tannins (that had mellowed when revisited a few days later) and a bit of fruit (candied raspberries per MM). Get to Know Grenache Class #gotm2020 — 2 years ago
