Wine Review: This slightly cloudy and dark ruby colored red blend from Anarchy was terrific. It opens with a cranberry and raspberry tea bouquet with hints of baking spice and jasmine. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, very smooth, seamless and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty boysenberry and red plum blend with notes of cedar and red licorice. We also detected some hints of five spice and stone dust. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors and dusty fine tannins build-up and are very lengthy. We would drink this impressive red blend on its own. Enjoy – Ken and Mark

Winemaker Notes: The one that started it all… Alternative to the max, the blend that defied all the rules except…. Anarchy RULES!!! The magic is the relationship between the Zin and the Mourvedre. The Zin leads with all the bright brambly fruit and space. The Mourvedre grabs it and twists it around and upside side adding layers of dark brooding spice and anise. A wine suddenly possessed by a darker force that captivates the imagination with the Dark side. Thank god for the sexy lady Syrah who comes to your aid and pulls you back toward the light as the wine finishes with the sultry mouthfeel of Syrah that trails into a sexy toasted oak finish. Makes me want to listen to NIN.
