Introducing "The Peasant"
(40% Mourvedre, 32% Syrah, 17% Grenache, 7% Counoise, 4% Tannat = 100% delicious!)
It's from a warm weather AVA (Paso) and, @ 15.3% alcohol, probably more of a fruit-bomb than the more refined palates would enjoy...all I know is that it was wonderful with the grilled flatiron steak I had with it.
And any wine which has the sentiment "Temperance, like chastity, is it's own punishment." printed right on the bottle can't be all bad.
Only 784 cases produced.
I've got to get me a refill...
