The 2012 Three Birds Proprietary Red, a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, is what Mike Officer calls his Chateauneuf du Pape Sonoma cuvee. The 2012, which achieved 14.9% alcohol, includes slightly more Syrah than usual. Copious notes of kirsch, black currants, lavender, loamy soil and pepper and spice are found in this soft, round, seductive red that caresses the palate. It should be drunk in its first 2-4 years of life.
The 2012 Red Wine Three Birds, Carlisle's Grenache/Syrah/Mourvèdre blend, is laced with the essence of dark red cherry, plum, spice and licorice, all supported by firm yet well-integrated tannins. This is another wine in the range that delivers fabulous quality for the money. The blend is 73% Grenache, 14% Syrah and 13% Mourvèdre, with floral notes from the Grenache that are especially prominent on the finish.
(a blend of grenache, syrah and mourvedre): Vivid ruby. Spicy red berries and fresh flowers on the perfumed nose. Really showing the grenache today, offering plump raspberry and cherry compote flavors and a hint of spicecake. Seamless and gently sweet on the smoothly tannic finish, with the floral note echoing.
