I wanted a bottle of wine for a summer meal of grilled hanger and salad. I love wines from Dry Creek and noticed this was from there. I am lucky enough to be there a couple times a year and have some favorites from a region where you'll see bumper sticker that say "NAPA makes auto parts, Sonoma makes wine". On seeing the grape mix, and being a sucker for Mourvèdre, Grenache, and Syrah, I bought this. Wow, I'm glad I did. I opened the bottle to add to my steak marinade two hours before I tasted it. Then, it was "Hmmm.... Interesting". At that point I noticed the grapes were sourced from Unti - a vineyard and wine maker who I have a personal love affair with. "Ah, more interesting", I said to myself. Four hours after opening, this wine is really really good. It reminds me of summer on the Mediterranean with a fantastic table wine. I'm not an oenophile, but I know what I like. It's priced right and great with food. Next time I'm in Sonoma, I'd like to meet the winemaker.

Blast of juicy raspberries and excellent stony and gravely minerality, just like the name promises. Big, brash, and yet somehow lovely. This, to me, is perfect.
