52% Syrah, 26% Mourvèdre, 22% Grenache. So, not a GSM, but an SMG. Just delicious. Rich nose has sappy, oozy blackberry infused with smoky embers and crushed stone. A whiff of dark cane syrup. It’s mouthfilling and more linear and lean in the mouth than the nose suggests. Savory and minerally mostly, with dry blackberry extract. Long finish. Really nice. — 15 days ago

PerUs Wine Company Proprietary Red Wine Alessio 2016, Napa Valley, California
To celebrate 15,000 followers on Vivino, i had to open something special.
Inky in color with a short reddish rim.
Strong nose of blackberries, black plums, cedar, light earth, licorice, vanilla, eucalyptus, chocolates, alcohol, herbs, coffee, spices and black pepper.
Full bodied, bold and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate and extremely fruity with blackberries, black currants, cooked cherries, figs, raisins, vanilla, cedar, cola, licorice, chocolates, tobacco, spices, alcohol, peppercorn and coffee.
Long finished with fine grained tannins and cherries.
This is just too delicious. What a great red from Napa Valley. An excellent Bordeaux blend.
Rich, dense, opulent, spicy, bold and elegant. Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel. Powerful and not for the timid.
Loved the nose and smelled on it for a while.
Although this is so tasty now, it is a sin to open it this young, as it has so much more potential. Will age nicely in the next 5 to 15 years.
The only other wine that I gave such a high score, at this young age, was the Penfolds Grange. I would love to try the two together at the same time. That would be very interesting.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. I gave it 6 hours in a decanter, and checked it periodically. Tannins come in after 6 hours, so be patient.
Good by itself or with food. A fabulous wine to share with friends and talk about.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
15.2% alcohol by volume.
$300. — 6 hours ago

Rich, bold Cab Franc — a month ago
This is a very tasty blend with red and briary flavors that lead to a full taste and finish. There are layers of fruit and light oak. Will probably benefit for another 2 years but very approachable now. — 16 days ago
Big and bold. Needed to open up a lot. Black currant and oak taste. Initial fruity taste then rich tannins — 5 hours ago
“Michigan didn't invent old-fashioned fudge, but it was perfected here. We pay tribute to this time-honored tradition with KBS Maple Mackinac Fudge. By amplifying the rich chocolate notes of KBS using Mackinac Fudge coffee, then adding maple syrup and aging it in oak bourbon barrels, we've created a bold new take on our barrel-aged classic” — a day ago
