85% Grenache (+60 year old vines) 15% Syrah.
Picked this up at Midway yesterday as a part of a mixed case buy. Very shy nose of cherry and and red berry. Spicy dark cherry with hints of earth and mineral. Delicious with a long and persistant mid palate finish. Usually $17 but bought on sale for $12 (two bottle buy to get discount). No vintage year anywhere on the bottle and I've looked till I'm almost blind. Great value at $12.
14.5% Alc/vol.

As a follow up I had a little less than half a bottle left over so finished yesterday just prior to the Ravens game. It showed more weight with pronounced dark chocolate notes and slightly more tannins. This is a really nice bottle of juice for the $.
