A little old world, a little new world. Great value here given the complexity. Grenache based, it has notes of cherry, red current, violets, spice, leather, teriyaki, salty minerality and an herbal quality. A sense of sweetness from the oak and higher ABV, but essentially dry with 5 g of RS. Decent length. Not the depth needed for an "excellent" score, and there's noted alcohol heat on the finish. A good "go to" mid week red. Nov. 2016.
