Toca Madera Winery Toca Madera Vineyard Syrah/ Grenache/ Mourvedre/ Viognier 2015, California

Reddish in color with light intensity.

Pronounced and fruity nose of black currants, cherries, sweet raspberries, tobacco, spices, light oak, earth, leather, tobacco, peppercorn, herbs and light chocolates.

Medium plus in body and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with currants, plums, cooked cherries, raspberries, licorice, oak, earth, chocolates, peppercorn, tobacco, herbs, spices, coffee and pencil lead.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very tasty GSM blend from California. Well balanced with nice complexity. Showing a great mouthfeel. Soft, spicy and elegant.

Good right out of the bottle, but better with some air (30 minutes).

This Single Vineyard GSM is peaking now, and will be good in the next few years.

This is an easy drinking red blend. I always enjoy these new world GSMs. Feels like the Viognier is a nice addition.

I paired it with a cheese plate with dry fruits, crackers and fresh berries.

A blend of 55% Syrah, 17% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre, 13% Viognier. Unfined and Unfiltered.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$32.
