A Rhone-style blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre.
Opaque purple color.
Full smell of blackberry, oak, a bit of tar.
Very fruity flavor, blackberry, cherry, peach, black pepper, alcohol warmth at the end.
Very nice bottle for $21.99, more like a fruit-forward product of a California "Rhone Ranger" than of the Rhone itself. More about power than about subtlety.
