“Fresh-flowing blood, dried Italian herbs and cured cuts of meat greet the nose on this annual Bonny Doon treat, a blend of 28% Syrah, 22% Grenache, 17% Cinsault, 17% Mourvèdre and 16% Carignane. The flavors are dominated by purple fruits, trending toward blackberry and blueberry, with violet florals and rustic dust.”


nose, tobacco, cherry wood ash, wild blackberry, bramble, cigar box, leather and garrigue on the nose. is that a note of brandy? raw ginger? definitely a smooth spice layer. on the palate, silky, luxurious length. oh yes, she seems to go on forever.
