When tasting the James Berry Vineyard this spring dark cherries and red fruits lead the way thanks to the Grenache, but with the addition of a new block of Monastrell (Spanish clone of Mourvèdre) there is this core of spice that is new to this wine. I love it. Of course it is wild and fruit driven with great chalky tannins, but this is a JBV more akin to the '10, it will greatly reward those of you with patience who will allow this wine to bloom.

Fresh and snappy, with a gritty tannic edge to the currant, raspberry, black licorice and fresh-turned earth notes, lending this a perfumed aroma. Presents a tough-edged tannic side that needs cellaring. Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Counoise. Best from 2016 through 2028. 1,587 cases made.
