Thick and unctuously soft, this southern Rhône-style blend is rich in blackberry jam, chocolate, licorice and bacon flavors, with a coating of smoky oak. It’s quite decadent, but could use greater structure.
This tastes like a hot, simple wine whose berry, cherry and bacon flavors have been acidified, making it strangely unbalanced. It finishes on the sweet, jammy side. Made of roughly equal parts Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache.
