Anglim Cerise 2006, French Camp Vineyard, Paso Robles, CA - $24

This wine is a blend of 39% Mourvèdre, 32% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and 4% Viognier and retails for $24 at Whole Foods, although it was on sale for $15.

Aroma - berries and a tiny bit of gunpowder
Taste - slight gunpowder, fruit, dry, soft to moderate tannins, long blueberry finish

The slight aroma and taste of gunpowder isn't unpleasant - it's a scent/flavor that I've noticed in other wines as well, and it must have something to do with the winemaking style or process.

All in all, a nice wine, and I would definitely buy it again, especially if I find it on sale for $15!
