06' Agharta Black Label. 84% Grenache 14% Syrah 2% Viognier. Aged 52 months in barrel. Just absolutely unheard of for a California wine(possibly unnecessary?)

What a wonderful nose- Rose petals, violets, spices. The palate- Ripened-red fruits, licorice, earthiness, pepper. Light acidity/ tannins. A beast upon first sip. Nice and approachable with a 30 to 60 minute decanting... becomes a medium- bodied wine. I would drink them by 2019.

@paxmahle kills it His alternate label exudes a refined Syrah. Deep rich sweet cherry with perfectly refined tannins. Light hints of black pepper add depth and character. Lower amounts of acidity, mean this is ripe for consuming. Just awesome

Pretty amazing. Big, brooding GSV from the CA North Coast.

On the nose, leather and very dark fruits with some cinnamon. The palate is dark and brooding with hints of anise and dark fruits. Very good indeed.
