2005 Kaleidos Morpheus

This is a small production Paso Robles blend of 70% Syrah, 15% Grenache, and 15% Mourvedre. It was aged 19 months in a mix of new and neutral French, American, and Hungarian oak. The darkly colored wine shows aromas of grape jelly, vanilla, and thick creme de cassis. On the palate loads of black fruit, spice, and vanilla attack the palate with a extraordinary amounts of extract. Inky tar-like cassis, black licorice, and black currant jam are just a few of the intense flavors that this wine profiles. This wine is as dark and inky on the palate as it is in color and has an inordinate amount of chewy currant extract. This wine is perhaps a little over the top and lacks a bit of nuance, but I like the punch and power of this wine. You won't find too many wines with more intense black fruit and tar than this one.  88-89 points
