Secret Squirrel Rhone Red 2012
Today’s Secret Squirrel GSM is a classic Rhone style blend of 48% Syrah, 32% Grenache, and 20% Mourvedre. Coming from Washington’s top rated 2012 vintage, it has a lovely nose, exhibiting bits of candied red fruits, pretty floral notes of lavender, and hints of spice. The structure is exceptionally easy drinking, with a very smooth texture on the palate, and medium body. Up front, it shows flavors of soft berries, with hints of jam and cherry lozenge. The background is filled with light suggestions of tobacco, tar, dried leaves, and herbs.
