Morningsave - WFH Wine
I was surprised to see a wine over on Morningsave.
Anyone know anything about it, or want to talk about its merits? I’m intrigued by the varietals in the blend. From the site:
The strength of the Paso Robles region to offer wonderful blends is clearly demonstrated in this wine. The combination of the fruit profiles from Grenache, Petite Sirah and Syrah really bring this wine to bear. The concentration of flavors creates a powerful presence while still maintaining sophistication and balance. The blend is both well-structured and harmonious. Layers of fruit continue to emerge as the wine opens up, revealing more and more of the wine’s personality.
Viognier is used as the ‘glue’ that binds these varieties together. Its co-fermentation with Syrah adds depth to the texture and produces a seam-less palate that enhances the dark and red fruits offered by each different grape.
The wine is bright and very fruit forward but continues to deliver right through the middle palate. We chose to allow firmer tannins to emerge to assist in ensuring a clean and balanced finish.
