OOOOOO so nice. Aptly named. I'll be drinking more of this wine.
My rating 86: Strange mixture with too much sweet taste in it. Nose is flowery. It is not a Rhone wine. Is that made for women who don't like firmer wines?

A very nice, easy drinking California Rhone-style blend. Though the percentages of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre are not listed, It's obvious that Grenache and Syrah are the big players here. Immediately after opening the bottle, I was a bit taken aback by the agressive nose. Strong alcohol and bright red fruits dominate. I decided to let it sit for a few before drinking. After about 30 minutes of opening up, it was a much more pleasant wine, probably due to its youth. Pleasant aromas of earth and red berry on the nose. On the palate, the Grenache sings with the perfect amount of black pepper to compliment the rich fruit of the Syrah. Overall, a very well balanced and easy drinking Rhone blend. Definitely a steal for the money! Highly recommended!
Very nice blend. Leg it breath to fully enjoy. Want to compare to other years.
Great Rhone blend. Any wine that supports Breast Cancer Research is automatically awesome. This wine would benefit from aging for a year, but long healthy decant will also do the trick. Great fruit with some peppery zip on the finish. I paired it with roasted veggie pizza. The mushroom really complemented the dirty, dusty qualities.
I had this in a restaurant last night and really enjoyed it. It was smooth and supple with lots of different flavors going on. I had it with lamb and my dining partner with braised short ribs. It worked well with both dishes.

A wine I have liked a lot in the past is their Rhone Ranger blend of Mourvedre, Syrah, Grenache and Petite Sirah, the 2011 Cashmere. This is not up to the level of several previous examples, but it is medium-bodied and attractive, with pepper, raspberry and a hint of herbaceously tinged cherry fruit. Drink it over the next year.
Pure and supple, this is easy to enjoy for its caressing tannins and savory plum and wild berry flavors. Good length. Mourvandegrave;dre, Syrah, Grenache and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2018.
Rustic and country-style is the way to describe this Mourvedre, Syrah and Grenache blend. With its soft, dry finish, smooth tannins and cherry, cola, herb and spice flavors, it's food friendly.
Smooth-textured, with grapey wild berry and cherry fruit that's medium-bodied and easy to enjoy. Shows white pepper and spice hints on the finish. Mourvedre, Grenache and Syrah.
Pure and supple, this is easy to enjoy for its caressing tannins and savory plum and wild berry flavors. Good length. Mourvegrave;dre, Syrah, Grenache and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2018.
Savory grape and wild berry flavors are trim, spicy, medium-bodied and complex, if on a modest scale. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now.
<p>This award-winning California red of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre is very flavorful, smooth wine which is well-suited to lamb or cooked beans.</p>
