Miner Family Vineyards the Odyssey Napa Valley Rhone Blend 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The Rhne Valley's rich winemaking tradition is the muse behind our opulent red blend, The Odyssey. With classic floral and anise aromas, this wine boasts fleshy dark fruit and a smoky, muscular character. The blend's supple flavors, structure and epic depth will allow this wine to evolve over the next decade. 60% Syrah, 25% Grenache & 15% Mourvedre Palisades & Stagecoach Vineyard

60% Syrah 25% Grenache 15% Mourvedre Syrah driven aromatics of grilled meats, violets and licorice and enhanced with a deep base of moist dirt and jammy, spicy strawberry tones. This is too sweetly fruited to be mistaken for a Rhone wine but it certainly shares certain traits, stony notes, soil, leather, and aromatic woodsy tones all contributing to a very complex bouquet. Relatively light bodied with a nice foundation of very fine, very ripe tannins. The flavors are great, fresh and fruity with gentle leather and game notes over spice and herb notes. The tannins pop out a bit on the finish, which has hints of candied orange peel and bitter herbs on the finale 90pts

Loads of pungent dark fruit and spice, hints of oak and leather, big red raspberries and ripe blackberries, baking spices, molasses, and cocoa.

Like a big pile of rusty nails with a slap of scathing tartness in the face, it's really something awesome. Hints of smoked deli meats.

Musty meat on the nose. Leathery but mellow mealy spice with candied orange and and bitter herbs on the finish (good call on the finish, GDP).
