"Purple drank." Would have guessed Syrah, but it's a Bordeaux blend. Whatever, I still enjoyed it in a guilty pleasure sort of way, but it's pretty over the top.

Should pair well with this expresso and cocoa crusted NY strip and Bob Marley in the background. The steak is still cooking however, this Denner Paso Robles Blend is rocking. Two hour decant, flashes a faint nose of milk chocolate. That's the beginning, I get this sweet Hersey kiss element, glycerin coating mouthfeel, black jam preserve, smoke and Mexican Vanilla Bean. Those flavors fill the entire palate. Somewhat linear across the palate. The ending is elegant, great acidity-tannins come back, fruit takes the back seat. I get rum soaked soaked fruit cake and fire roasted marshmallows. Happy Monday!
