2003 Vinum Cellars Red Dirt Red

This blend is 53% Syrah, 32% Mouvedre, and 15% Grenache. This is a Rhone blend, but you may hear it referred to as a GSM if it’s from the New World.

The nose has strawberry and some earth in it.

Black fruit, ripe black and raspberries, anise, oak, earth, tar, and spice all with medium tannins.

The finish starts with some strawberry and fades away to oak.

I enjoy this one, it’s an interesting blend that we don’t normally drink a lot of and I think it works well. A solid wine and an interesting label would probably make this a reasonable gift to the wine fan in your life.
