'13. Solid. Can't beat it for the $. Bright red fruit with a lot more character and liveliness than previous vintages.

43% grenache, 41% syrah, 9% mourvedre, 4% counoise, 3% cinsault. 2012 vintage.

Dark ruby with a watery pink rim. Red and black fruits, some black cherry and anise and charcuterie notes which makes sense since this is primarily grenache and syrah. Santa Barbara county does amazing things with Rhone varietals in a new world way, and I am okay with it.

Tannins are super smooth but the finish doesn't suffer. I feel this would go amazingly with a duck dish with a cherry reduction.

Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, counoise, and cinsault. Uber juicy and easy drinking. Fruit punch/sangria flavors.

M5 and eggamuffins at Barbareño last night. Aromas of wild herbs, black olives, licorice, and fruit so dark that Darth Vader would approve. #2012 #rhone
