The Wine Advocate
Another great buy is the Cotes du Rhone-like blend, the 2010 Cashmere Proprietary Red, a 20,000 case blend of Mourvedre, Syrah and Grenache aged for 9 months (one quarter in oak barrels). A dark ruby color is accompanied by abundant notes of kirsch, lavender and pepper as well as a hint of licorice. This surprisingly complex, medium-bodied, fruit-dominated red offers both power and elegance, and should be compatible with a number of dishes. It should drink well for 1-2 years.
