First tried @Fablewines with @CharlesBanks3 in Santa Barbara. Going old school with the label. Delicious.

Today I’m missing the ability to travel to far-flung places or to a local watering hole for that matter.

Intense aromas of dark roast espresso coffee tannins, sandalwood, berries, and cinnamon spice.

Upfront cinnamon and black pepper spice kick, medium body and acidity. Smooth operator with a cool whisper of raspberries and the like culminating in a pleasant clove afterglow.

This is different in a good way. Complex and surprising. Easy drinking, too. Could think of many ways to pair this culinarily and seasonally. From baked lamb to popcorn, to even some rich creamy gelato flavors.

Nice Syrah/Mourvèdre blend. Black fruit and roasted meats. Finish falls off fairly quick, but tasty!
