Enjoyed with a bone-in filet.

Solid garnet. When I think of SB Grenache, I think this. Ripe red fruit, like a raspberry purée. Beautiful leather, some pencil lead. Total consistent palate with a great weight. Nice finish with a lovely structure. Nice...

Have not had that wine yet, but will need to get my hands on it. My guess is that 07 was the last year he made that - or perhaps 08 - because I know he doesn't get any more syrah from there (so I'm guessing no more grenache??!?). Also, what % of syrah was in there?!?!?

Cheers!
