34% Syrah/24% Grenache/15% Mourvèdre/ 13% Petite Sirah/7% Graciano/4% Vranac/3% Counoise. Meaty, structured, and pretty powerful. Black olive, tar, & bacon fat.

Cimarron Vineyard. 50/24/9/9/8 blend of Monastrell, Garnacha, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Counoise. 15% alc/vol. I love the screw cap (seriously). Purple-red, light to moderate pigment extraction, very good clarity. Red fruit “fruit leather” and funk in nose. Cherry, raspberry flavors, cola with length on finish, nice acidity with light skin astringency on finish. A menthol flavor emerges after two hours, while the cola flavor recedes. Still an easy-drinking style as suggested by reviews here of earlier vintages.

Sweet like a cherry cola, enough spice to keep it interesting, but no depth. Easy drinking...really really easy drinking.

A Little surprised by the 15% alc, but she wears it well. Yummy goodness like a fig newton warmed up on top of vanilla bean ice cream. A nice change from my usual white acid Mohawks.

Easy to drink- went well with both a steak and pasta. Seemed well balanced and slightly fruity with minerals
