Muy Bonito-Syrah Merlot Grenache &cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2004
Veering into the somewhat non-traditional, this delightful, eminently drinkable red brings together the forward fruit and spice of the varietals associated with France's southerly Rhone region (Syrah, Grenache)and the structure and complexity of the grapes typically (historically) cultivated in the Bordeaux (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon). Black fruit aromas and a hint of peppery spice are accompanied by mouthwatering raspberry and blackberry fruit in the mouth. Hints of vanilla and toasty oak bring a touch of seriousness to the endeavor, allowing some aging potential of at least 3-5 additional years. To drink tonight with any of the usual suspects, ranging from the red meats to the red sauced pastas or wild mushrooms would be a pleasure. Versatile and fun but with a serious side (just like some people we know). 50% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Grenache Alc: 14.4% Total Acidity: 6.5 G/L pH: 3.60 RS: 0.3
