Domaine la Sarabande Grenache Syrah "Misterioso"

Cracka Review

The 2011 'Misterioso' was made using some lovely Grenache that had some real freshness and fruit driven appeal. We blended in some young vine syrah to add some tannin and complexity. 

The resulting wine is deep rich ripe cherry appearance. The aromas are again of dark cherries and some lifted glazed fruit characters. The palate is again dominated by dark fruits but there is some attractive strawberry characters combined with fine tannins. The wine finishes dry but a balanced acidity helps to lengthen the palate. 

This is an immediately appealing wine but it will continue to evolve gracefully over the next three years. Best drunk before 2016.

The Wine Front (2011 Vintage) says
Raw meat, pepper, jubey blackcurrant and red fruit. Very youthful. Grainy tannins, a lowish acid, slippery feel, built on tannin. Dried herb and earth on finish. Character +
