This delicious red blend reminds me of a yummy mixed berry pie, flavorful and nuanced. The grapes making up this wine include Counoise, a Rhone grape,  adds a peppery note and good aOpolo Grand Rouge 2010cidity, Grenache from Spain is a generally spicy, berry-flavored and soft on the palate with a relatively high alcohol content, and Syrah,  a dark-skinned grape grown throughout the world and used primarily to produce powerful red wines, adds the body, or spine and a full mouth feel. Paso Robles is the perfect place for this kind of grape that requires big heat in order to come into full sugar. Expertly blended, this wine is satisfyingly rich yet not overpowering. Very enjoyable, fragrant aroma and beautiful garnet color.
