Ratings & Tasting notes:
97 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Made from 33% Grenache, 32% Mourvèdre, 24% Syrah and 11% Counoise, the 2015 James Berry Vineyard Proprietary Red reveals a deep garnet-purple color and expressive nose of black currants, black cherries and mulberries with hints of baking spices, chocolate box, violets and Sichuan pepper. The palate is surprisingly elegant, with great intensity of flavors framed by soft, sensuous tannins and a lively line carrying the fruit and spices to a long, long finish.
95 points Wine Spectator
A dynamic combination of power and refinement, with a penetrating but balanced core of polished tannins and expressive blackberry, stony mineral and dark licorice flavors that finish with verve. Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Counoise. Drink now through 2028.
Stored in a climate controlled cellar on its side in the dark at 55 degrees F and 75% humidity since purchase.
