2012 - this field blend (syrah, Malbec, Mourvèdre, and some other Rhone varietals) is "ok". A true mutt of a wine, totally palatable but overpriced at the $16 I paid for it. A better price point would be $11-$12.

Very fruit forward, with lush black fruit. A decent, enjoyable wine, but lacks complexity.

Not a great nose, but it is very velvety. Subtle plum and blackberry.

Big taste that circles the tongue but not overpowering. Great structure that provides a consistent fruit. Hint of blueberry on the finish with a taste of chocolate. Needs a little time to open up. Will be buying again.
