Four Brix Rhondezvous California Rhone Blend Rhone Style Blend American Syrah & Rhone Blends 2008

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

91 points. I immediately detect the Mourvedre on the nose. It’s got that earthy, coffee bean and raspberry component that I often associate with California Mourvedre, mixed in with a really nice chocolate tone. There is a good amount of red fruit, a beautiful violet aroma, and quite a bit of black pepper. The palate is instantly ripe and refined. It’s full of red fruit and cranberry flavors making up the core of the wine, combined with some dried fruit, volcanic stone, bramble bush, and some peppered dried orange peel. This is a very well structured wine, with an excellent sense of terroir. I’m very impressed by its depth, and blindfolded, I think I would have guessed that this was a single vineyard wine before I ever guessed it was a blend of multiple appellations. It’s an impressive effort and an excellent example of true art in blending. Absolutely worth trying.
