In the glass this LA County Grenache/Syrah/Merlot blend has a black purple center with rosey red edges surrounded by a hot pink halo….
A sniff is ZESTY with ripe red raspberries and sandalwood ———> A revisit shows blackberry pie with a touch of salinity and I’m intrigued….
The palate starts BIG with red raspberry and blueberry purée…. A chew and a swish coats my tongue with cranberry sauce and strawberry jam before that saline shows back up to capitalize on black cherries GALORE ——–> The ending finds an impossible zippiness as bing cherries and dried flowers create a loooooong, seductive finish….
Byron Blatty is making some seriously delicious wines out of LA County ———–> This particular offering has plenty of big, hedonistic characteristics that’re somehow leveled out BEAUTIFULLY by layered, acidic structure…. 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with something killer like The Revivalists – Stand Up
