Axis Mundi Windmill Vineyard Ballard Canyon Grenache/Syrah 2013

From the winemaker:

2013 Axis Mundi, Grenache/Syrah from Ballard Canyon, Santa Ynez Valley: A whole different ballgame this year. Many have fallen in love with the traditional style of our Grenache/Syrah—stuck stylistically between a red wine and a rosé. Now that we make a proper rosé, we have decided to go a different direction with our ‘G/S’ blend of 2/3 Grenache and 1/3 Syrah. That direction is Chateauneuf du Pape: a full bodied red wine with more grip and mouth-presence. We also added a bit of Russian and Slovenian Oak, and we think you’ll love the result. Yet another wonder: no price hike! Still about $20. The 2013 has a bright and primary nose of vinous/grapey, raspberry and cherry with hints of oak toast, spice and dusty earth. Dense and broad compared to past vintages (2010-2012), but manages to maintain the juicy persistence that made those wines so charming. Bright finish with hints of cocoa-laced tannin.
